February 21, 2019 News

Not much new this week, aside from the opening of a grant opportunity through the Saskatoon Community Foundation. Sometimes it’s just a slow news week, I guess!

The next news post here will be the week of March 4.

Saskatoon Events

The University of Saskatchewan’s Community Relations and Engagement Office is hosting a talk and workshop on February 27 with Jayne Malenfant on the topic of “Youth, Lived Experience and Inclusion in Community Research”. More details in the poster.

Technically not in Saskatoon, but Tamarack Community Institute is hosting a workshop in Edmonton on Asset-Based Community Development May 28-30. I’ve heard that there are some folks here in Saskatoon who are looking to register and travel together to save on costs and thus help build capacity in this area locally – if you’re interested in attending this workshop, drop me a line and I can put you in touch with those people.
