The Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program is a partnership among Sask Sport Inc., SaskCulture Inc. and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. and assists in the development of sport, culture and recreation programs by providing funds to non-profit community organizations operated by volunteers.

The goal of this program is to get people involved in sport, culture and recreation activities by enabling communities to address the needs of local residents. If the community grant is more than $2,000, a portion of the total grant must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations such as indigenous people, seniors, women, the economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability, and single-parent families. The under-represented requirement can be met by including these populations in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs.

Comprehensive School Community Health

What opportunities does Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan provide schools?

MCoS provides one day interactive provincial anti-racism and anti-discrimination youth leadership workshops in a variety of locations across Saskatchewan.  Students engage with peers from throughout the province as they participate in activities to explore identity, intercultural relationships, power, privilege, racism and discrimination.  

Prior to these workshops, MCoS offers a one day training opportunity to approximately 12-20 facilitators (including high school students, university pre-service education students, Settlement Workers in Schools and others with an interest in the work) to build capacity to facilitate these activities throughout the province.   

How does the Ministry of Education support the Arrêt/Stop Racism youth leadership workshops?

In 2016-17, the Ministry of Education supported MCoS to train students and school staff to facilitate activities in their schools.  The project includes three webinars:

  • an orientation session for teachers to help them to work with the students to identify issues of racism, discrimination and oppression in their schools prior to the workshop;
  • a session for teachers and students on project development after the workshop; and,
  • an opportunity for students to present their projects, share their successes and reveal their challenges.

How does the anti-racism workshop and the CSCH approach work together?

The CSCH approach focuses on creating opportunities for children and youth to experience healthy, supportive and equitable learning environments where all students feel safe, cared for and respected.  The Arrêt/Stop Racism youth leadership workshops create this environment for high school students and empower them with tools, examples, experience and confidence to replicate this at their schools.  These workshops also engage elders and other community members to support a whole school approach to anti-racism and anti-discrimination.

Tool Kit: Welcoming and Inclusive Communities Toolkit

In July 2017, the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan created the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) Toolkit.  This user-friendly toolkit has embedded an action plan that is workable for all organizations, big and small.  It also includes success stories from bigger centres and smaller communities in the province.
