SSAIC April Newsletter

SASS Survey

Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan are still looking for participation in their sexual violence survey as part of a research collaboration with the University of Saskatchewan.

If you are a survivor, service provider, or secondary victim of sexual violence please contribute to this important data so that we can better advocate for sexual assault services in our province.


Sexual Assault Awareness Week in YXE is happening May 14-20. This year, SSAIC is proud to partner with Fionn MacCool’s, who have created 4 special (and mouthwatering) feature dishes, with 25% of the proceeds coming to SSAIC programs and services!

Mark your calendars and show up hungry anytime during SAAW 2018 for some good karma and good eats.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Megan (communications.ssaic@sasktel.net) to discuss the marketing campaign. If you like posters and sidewalk chalk, have we got a deal for you!


First Responder to Sexual Assault

SSAIC will be offering this comprehensive 2-day training on April 16 & 17 (still a few spots left, register ASAP!) and May 29 & 30.

Registration is online – quick and easy!

Many professionals in the health and mental healthcare fields are likely to be the first person a survivor shares their story with—and that first interaction can make or break the survivor’s decision to move forward with a rape kit at the hospital, getting mental health support, or police reporting.

It’s no small thing being trusted with someone’s story of sexual abuse, so we know you want to be prepared.
