Membership Requirements

Only incorporated organizations can become members of the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism.

Every application for membership is subject to the approval of the Board of Directors of the Mechanism.

Any member organization may withdraw from membership in the Mechanism by providing written notice to the Board of Directors of SSM.

Our bylaws define a member organization as: “An association of seniors which is non-discriminatory in relation to race, religion, sex, physical or mental abilities and which has been incorporated for at least two (2) years for the purpose of supporting and advancing the common interests of seniors.”

Member organizations must be either Provincial or City-wide in terms of: membership, goals and objectives, and providing a network of programs or services.

Any organization that meets the definition of a member organization, and which has not been represented by any other existing member organization of SSM, may apply for membership in the Mechanism.

CONNECT – Seniors Mental Health

CONNECT – Seniors Mental Health

CONNECT, is a pre-recorded presentation that offers support and ideas for older people to live safely and comfortably and to stay mentally and physically strong. Most effective if a group can watch it and discuss the information.

  • A small group may individually access the video and then video-chat or discuss it in a conference call.
  • One person may download the video and then use a program like Zoom to share and discuss with a group.
  • For people who live in a care facility, staff may download the video and share it with a socially distanced group within the facility.

Another option is for a group to contact the SSM Office (306-359-9956) and arrange for a narrated presentation for their group, using Zoom.
