The Saskatoon Sexual Assault & Information Centre (SSAIC) is committed to front-line support, advocacy, and education to address sexualized violence in our community. We have served survivors across intersectional identities for nearly five decades, and are dedicated to continued learning, unlearning, and growth.
SSAIC will make a stronger commitment to First Nation, Métis, and Inuit survivors of sexualized violence and intergenerational trauma, by joining our voice formally into the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Calls to Justice.
Our commitment includes always being open to and engaging in new or different ways of Reconciliation. We are grateful to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry for their work and developing frameworks to begin this work in a good way.
We have identified specific calls where we believe SSAIC can be an agent of change in the community we serve, and we will work hard to implement these calls into our systems in the upcoming years. In this process of engagement and healing, we expect that we will face challenges along the way but we hope our community will continue to guide us and hold us accountable.
