SSAIC can’t wait to go out of business.
75-80% of our clients experience sexualized violence at the hands of someone they know and trust—a family member, a co-worker, a romantic partner…can you imagine the pain and confusion that causes?
As Saskatoon’s major service provider to victims and survivors of sexual violence, we work with clients of all genders to sort through the complex emotions of guilt, shame, and loss of self-esteem, in addition to life-altering consequences like dropping out of school, the inability to continue employment, and the loss of friends or family.
We don’t question the validity of a victim’s claims and we don’t push for the traumatic details. We let the client set the agenda and pace of their unique healing process.
The work is sometimes heartbreaking, but our clients are eternally courageous and healing is absolutely possible.
At SSAIC we hope for the day our services are no longer necessary, but until then we are proud to contribute our skills and hearts to the cause.

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is over on Sunday, June 30. That means you have only a few more days to make a donation to SSAIC (receiptable!) through Canada Helps.
Every dollar you donate (minimum $3 donation) enters SSAIC in a chance to win at $10K cash prize.
As SSAIC is running a deficit budget for the second year in a row, $10,000 would do a lot to help offset the lack of core funding.
You can create a recurring monthly donation through our website giving portal. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt.
