Valley View Centre Transition

Valley View Centre (VVC) Transition Progress Summary

Government is now in the final year of the VVC Transition. By December 2019, all residents of VVC will have moved.

Government has committed to a person-centred planning process and works collaboratively with people with intellectual disabilities, their families and communities to ensure successful transitions into the community. This process takes a lot of time and brings very positive results. Because of this, the original closure date was extended to make sure that each and every VVC resident has the supports and services they need to live happy, healthy lives in the community of their choice.

Although the pace of the transitions has not met the original project timeline, residents, families and advocates have expressed their appreciation for the level of care and commitment to the specific needs of each individual. This was noted in the initial findings of a VVC transition evaluation that was initiated by the Ministry of Social Services in 2016.

Former Valley View residents have transitioned to a variety of Saskatchewan communities including:

  • Esterhazy;
  • Gravelbourg;
  • Kindersley;
  • Moose Jaw;
  • Prince Albert;
  • Regina;
  • Saskatoon;
  • Swift Current;
  • Warman; and
  • Wilkie.

As of January 2019, Government purchased 36 properties to serve as supports for Valley View residents. Purchases, renovation and construction of capital projects are being managed through Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC) and the Living Skies Housing Authority.
