We are pleased to present this edition of the Saskatchewan Women's Directory

This Directory is designed to serve several purposes:

- to provide a ready source of information about services of interest to women;

- to provide a listing of women's organizations currently active in the province;

- to increase referral and communication between groups;

- to point out organizations women can contact to become involved; and,

- to inspire women with the diversity of activity taking place within the province.

A sincere effort has been made to include services and organizations from all areas of
Saskatchewan - rural, northern and urban. In addition to the basic organizational description and
main contact areas, the regional addresses provide lists of services and organizational
representatives located throughout the provice.

This Directory is organized according to subject area, and we have attempted to present the
information in an accessible and logical order. We hope that you will find it useful and that you will
share it with your friends, clients and co-workers.

The world of organizations and services is a dynamic one. We have attempted to ensure that the
information contained in this Directory is as accurate as possible, yet, every week there are new
developments as organizations form and change. Your corrections or suggestions would be
appreciated. Please contact the Status of Women Office at the address on the inside cover.
