STC Health & Family Services is a diverse, multi-disciplinary incorporated entity wholly owned by the seven (7) First Nations signatories to the Saskatoon Tribal Council Convention Act. It is mandated to address opportunities, issues, and items of concern in public health and social development. Directed initially to provide services and supports to the On-Reserve membership, it recently was expanded to address public and community health issues in Saskatoon. Services in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods are in keeping with the authority vested to the Saskatoon Tribal Council under the Saskatchewan First Nations Urban Protocol 1996 (revised February 2007).
Programs and Services
STC Health & Family Services Inc. provides support services to the seven (7) member First Nations through its Wellness Program through their local health and social development authorities and direct clinical supervision to front-line staff. With a few exceptions, actual service delivery is designed, directed and managed at the community level.
These programs and services include all aspects of community and public health and well-being, including:
Home and Community Care
Environmental and Public Health
Child, Youth and Family Services
The organizational structure is comprised of eight (8) program and service units covering over 103 individual-specific programs and services. These programs and services are delivered with a staff complement of 60 full-time employees working with over 300 community-employed front-line staff.
Healthy, happy, supportive, balanced individuals, families, communities, and nations.
We intend to ensure that the members of the Saskatoon Tribal Council have access to services and programs to address life holistically and in balance with the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects, thereby enabling individuals, families and communities to achieve optimal health and well-being. This will be achieved by cooperating with our Elders, Leadership and community authorities.
