Scam Alert!

There is someone that we believe is from the US posing as staff from the Community Initiatives Fund. They contact people through Facebook claiming that the person’s name is listed on CIF’s ‘winners list’ and request bank information to transfer their winnings. If you are contacted by someone in regard to this, we urge you to contact your local authorities.

To be clear, this is NOT the Community Initiatives Fund. We ONLY fund incorporated Saskatchewan nonprofit organizations through a rigorous application and review process. We do not provide funds to individuals. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Executive Director, Tracey Mann at 306.780.9395.

Preparing for Retirement

SARCAN employs just over 730 full-time, part-time and casual employees. Roughly two-thirds of SARCAN employees either experience a disability or have transitioned from social assistance. “67% of our workforce is currently over 50. So we anticipate that in the next 10 years, over 100 employees will either retire or leave SARCAN due to medical issues that make them unable to work,” shared Amy McNeil, Executive Director of SARC. The Preparing for Retirement project intends to address challenges and opportunities by developing resources, supports, processes, and tools to help employees feel confident, prepared, and connected as they transition to retirement.
