The Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan is the deliberative assembly of the Saskatchewan Legislature in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Bills passed by the assembly are given royal assent by the Queen of Canada in Right of Saskatchewan, (represented by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan). The legislature meets at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina.
There are 61 constituencies in the province, which elect members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) to the Legislative Assembly. All are single-member districts, though the cities of Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw have been represented by multi-member constituencies in the past.
The legislature has been unicameral since its establishment; there has never been a provincial upper house.
The current party standings in the legislature are as follows:
- Member in BOLD CAPS is the Premier of Saskatchewan.
- Members in bold are in the Cabinet of Saskatchewan.
- Members in italic are Legislative Secretaries to Cabinet Ministers.
- † Speaker of the Assembly

In September 2013 the Legislature established the position of Usher of the Black Rod. Their role is functionally similar to the one for the Senate of Canada. Rick Mantey was the first person to hold the office. The current Usher of the Black Rod, as of 2014, is Ben Walsh.
The Black Rod was made by Scott Olson Goldsmith of Regina.
