Health System Transition Progress

Transition Team Weekly Project Update

Weekly updates will be posted below about the Government's progress on transitioning from 12 existing Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) to a single Provincial Health Authority.

Week of August 14, 2017


Over the summer, the Indigenous Health Working Group is engaging Indigenous people, both rural and urban, to help inform the Saskatchewan Health Authority on how to best address the health needs of First Nations and Métis people in a culturally responsive and respectful manner, as recommended by the Advisory Panel on Health System Structure.

Engagement sessions are currently underway to gain feedback and input from First Nations and Métis people on Indigenous Health issues and opportunities.

  • The most recent session was an Elders Forum held at Wanuskewin on August 2, where 24 First Nations and Métis Elders from across the province discussed Indigenous issues and opportunities.
  • Northern engagement sessions took place in late June in the communities of La Loche, Buffalo Narrows, Ile a la Crosse, Beauval and Green Lake.
  • To-date, there have been 19 information and engagement sessions with First Nations and Métis leadership, communities and health directors, including:
    • Prince Albert Grand Council
    • Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation
    • Touchwood Agency
    • File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council
    • Meadow Lake Tribal Council

The Indigenous Health Working Group will continue to organize engagement sessions into the fall months, with the goal to hear what is working well, what could be better and how health services for Indigenous people could be improved in the future.

  • The Working Group will compile all of the feedback it receives and share it with the new Saskatchewan Health Authority for consideration.
