An Environmental Scan of Programs and Services Serving Aboriginal People in Saskatoon
This publication from 2013-2014 includes a scan of programs and services that exist in Saskatoon to serve Aboriginal people, and programs/services often used by Aboriginal people.
The report's findings begin with statistics that show the age of Aboriginal people is much younger than the average, that homelessness disproportionately affects Aboriginal populations, as well as higher unemployment rates. The scan reports that there are over 1,000 services and programs for Aboriginal people in Saskatoon, and sums up the top 5 popular resources that are accessed by Saskatoon's aboriginal people by category (services for individuals, families, communities, religious resources, resources for children, elders, etc.).
The report's recommendations include:
Better efforts to address Aboriginal employment and building cultural competencies within organizations
An Aboriginal-led housing initiative
Tailored voting information
More programs and services for Aboriginal Elders and seniors
