March 15, 2020

We are closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and taking proactive measures to limit its impact on our employees, those who use our services and our community. Our priority remains everyone’s health and welfare.

We ask that:

  • You preferably contact our office via phone or email rather than dropping in.
     
  • Should you wish to be contacted by phone, please provide your phone number in the email message, and a member of our team will contact you. 

Events, classes and meetings

  • All Saskatoon Open Door Society related public events and gatherings are cancelled until further notice or moved to an online format. Regular gatherings like classes, support groups, and small meetings will continue for now with strict health protocols in place.
     
  • If you are unsure if you should attend a class or meeting with one of our staff, please call us or write us an email.
