Saskatchewan Chapter

About The Chapter

The Saskatchewan Chapter of CANSWA supports Continuing Care Assistants working in Longterm Care, in the community, and within the Hospital setting.

CANSWA Saskatchewan also advocates for Support Workers working with individuals with Challenges and Special Needs. There is no affiliation between CCAs and Support Workers in our province; however, both work with vulnerable individuals.

The Saskatchewan chapter of CANSWA works to improve, support, and bring recognition to CCAs and Support Workers’ frontline efforts.
