The Saskatoon Preschool Foundation (SPF) provides tuition subsidies of up to $800 for preschool children to attend community preschool if they live in areas where Prekindergarten programs are not available and the cost of tuition would be beyond their families' resources.  There is a continuous review of applications for the current school year and the upcoming school year. Community preschool locations and tuition subsidy application forms are available at www.spf.sk.ca 

Sum Theatre and La Troupe du Jour are proud to present The Hockey Sweater / Le Chandail, a musical and bilingual adaptation of Roch Carrier’s beloved short story, Le ChandailThe Hockey Sweater tells the story of a child who wishes for a new Montreal Canadiens hockey sweater, but receives instead something he could never have imagined. This re-telling of a Canadian classic, now performed on an outdoor rink,  embodies the hope that any child with a stick and a puck can become Maurice “Le Rocket” Richard.

Easter Seals works to enrich the lives of every individual experiencing disability in our province. Each year they provide services to children, youth, adults, and their families through programs offered by SaskAbilities, owner and operator of Easter SealsTM Saskatchewan. They are fully dedicated to enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem, and self-
determination of individuals experiencing disability, through such programs as Camp Easter Seal, Summer Fun, and Adaptive Technology Services.


CAMP EASTER SEAL – is the only completely barrier-free camp facility of its kind in Saskatchewan and offers campers a true camping experience. Campers enjoy horseback riding, arts and crafts, sports, campfires, boating, and swimming, often for the first time. Through corporate and public donations and the efforts of countless volunteers, we are able to subsidize our weekly summer camps, allowing campers to attend free of charge or at a reduced rate. The average cost to send an individual to Camp Easter Seal is $1,955.
In 2021, Easter SealsTM is preparing to support campers in the safest way possible by creating a robust virtual camping experience as well as exploring possibilities for new overnight family retreats and day camps for groups or households to experience a day at camp in their own cabin, complete with meals and activities. Easter SealsTM is looking forward to staying connected with everyone through your generous support.


SUMMER FUN – is an urban day camp where children and young adults experiencing disability enjoy recreation during the summer months. Programming is funded through donations to Easter SealsTM Saskatchewan. The average cost per child is $1,500.


ADAPTIVE TECHNOLOGY SERVICES – is a program that uses advanced technology and computer equipment to promote independence and increase quality of life.

Clearing of driving lanes on residential streets has been completed. Crews will now focus their attention on the following:

  • Continuing to clean and clear priority streets as needed;
  • Residential streets that need more attention to improve drivability;
  • Addressing problem areas on residential streets (e.g. snow piles near driveways or in front of fire hydrants);
  • Removal of snow in Business Improvement Districts;
  • Industrial areas.

Where piles of snow present a clear issue, they will be removed. This includes large piles that restrict sight lines on priority roads and piles of especially heavy, packed snow around driveway entrances and parked vehicles. With the massive accumulation of snow, there will still be piles of snow on residential streets reducing on-street parking at times. Crews will return in the coming weeks for snow removal, once the other priorities have been addressed.
