I don't know much about them other than they're from Canada and they have a few different acoustic types.

I picked up a S&P guitar at a pawn shop last week. The only thing I could tell you about it is that it's blue. If I were to take a guess at the wood, I would say the fretboard is rosewood. There are several series of guitars on their website. It still has a decent sound though. Reminiscent of my old Yamaha FG700S.

Specs according to their website:
Back & Sides : Red Wild Cherry
Top : Spruce (Select Pressure Tested Solid Top)
Fingerboard & Bridge : Rosewood
Finish : Semi Gloss Varnish Burst Finish
Tusq® nut & saddle by Graphtech

S&P are one one the brand names of LaSiDo, which include Seagull, Norman, Arte and Luthierie, Godin and La Patrie. They are generally well-regarded.

I had no idea. Thanks for the info. So, I can assume that it will last me a relatively long time provided I don't treat the thing like crap?

All acoustics, regardless of price, are prone to structural deterioration over time, so it's a bit of a lottery as to how long they will last without expensive major repair. If your S&P has a bolt-on neck - you should be able to see the bolt heads or a covering plate on the heel block - it wouldn't cost too much to fix it. So yes, if you're both careful and lucky it could last long enough to hand over to your grandkids.

If what you mean by, "not treating it like crap", includes paying attention to humidity, and not stringing it up with too heavy of a string set, then yes, it should last you a long, long time. There are no guarantees in life, but those two things will help maximize the odds in your favor.
