Government Invests in Community Safety Program for Youth in Pinehouse

Released on June 19, 2023

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing more than $277,000 over three years for the Pinehouse Wellness Centre Restorative Program in support of youth in the community and surrounding area.

The Restorative Program in Pinehouse was developed in 2018 through a partnership between the government, the Pinehouse Wellness Centre and the Northern Lights School Division. The program provides individualized supports to over 20 students annually, creating opportunities for local youth to participate in activities outside of school hours, including: barbeques, cooking/baking courses, fishing trips and youth conferences.  

“Restorative programs like this build a strong foundation for our youth and strong Saskatchewan families and communities,” Athabasca MLA Jim Lemaigre said on behalf of Justice Minister and Attorney General Bronwyn Eyre. “This is an investment into our future. Thank you to the Pinehouse Wellness Centre, and Northern Lights School Division for their partnership on this program to ensure the well-being of youth in our communities.”

The program is for children and youth between the ages of four and 18, and focuses on preventing and resolving conflict, repairing relationships, and connecting students to services and supports they need to be successful in school, and reduce the likelihood of future involvement with the criminal justice system. Students who participate in the program have seen tangible results, such as improved communication skills, increased school attendance and academic participation.

“The Pinehouse Wellness Centre works very hard alongside community agencies to serve Pinehouse Lake residents,” Pinehouse Wellness Centre Director Hannah Natomagan said. “We aim to improve the well-being of youth, adults, and elders and to strengthen families. The youth voice is amplified by the strategic planning that has occurred, which is working to empower the youth by strengthening their skills.”

Pinehouse Wellness Centre integrates traditional teachings into the program in partnership with the annual Lance Memorial Culture Camp, a week-long program attended by approximately 60 youth each year. The camp is available to youth in Pinehouse Lake and surrounding communities in the north.
