A Place to Feel Empowered

The YWCA Saskatoon’s heart lies in our community and the women we empower every day. We work to nurture the well-being of women, youth, and children in our community through inclusive services and supports.

Show Your Support

Your continued support, sponsorships, donations, and volunteerism helps thousands of women and families in Saskatoon each year. With your help, we provide access to programs, give necessary care and assistance, and share in mutual successes that ripple out to everyone in our community.

The YWCA Saskatoon serves its community on Treaty 6 Territory and the homeland of the Métis.

Treaty 6 includes the ancestral lands of the Nehiyaw and Nehithaw/Cree, Nahkawe/Saulteaux, Stoney, Nakota, and Dakota peoples. We pay our respect to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place, and reaffirm our relationship with one another.
