Health Councils being set up


Saskatchewan residents who want to make a difference in health care have the opportunity to serve on a number of health professionals councils.

The Ministry of Health is seeking motivated people to fill important public representative positions on one of 26 self-regulating health professional councils in Saskatchewan. Closing date for submission of resumés is February 10.

“We’re looking for people who are eager to share their experience and knowledge on these health councils,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “Public members help to ensure that the best interests of Saskatchewan residents are represented, and we value their role in putting patients first.”

Self-regulating health professional associations include the Saskatchewan College of Pharmacists, the Saskatchewan Dental Hygienists’ Association, the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists and many others.

Residents with relevant skills including prior experience on volunteer boards, councils or committees, are encouraged to apply.  Meetings convene in Regina, Saskatoon or other locations in Saskatchewan. The time commitment ranges from four to 12 days a year.  Travel expenses and an honorarium will be paid.

Saskatchewan residents interested in serving on a council should submit a resumé including a history of their community involvement and volunteer activities, along with relevant education and employment experience to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health, Workforce Planning Branch, 3475 Albert Street, Regina SK S4S 6X6, or email
