SFFA 2020 Conference Cancelled, Annual General Meeting Postponed

18-Mar-2020 - Saskatoon SK

In reaction to the COVID-19 virus a decision was made that the Saskatchewan Foster Families Association will be cancelling the 2020 Pre-Conference Training, Conference and furthermore we will be postponing the Provincial Annual General Meeting. Our immediate focus is on ensuring the health and safety of our members and their families.

Today the Government of Saskatchewan declared a provincial State of Emergency, giving the government broad powers to address the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes measures like the ability to limit travel to or from a community or region of the province and that all public gatherings larger than 50 people are prohibited.

We will advise our membership in the upcoming months of the plans to reschedule the 2020 Provincial Annual General Meeting.

Again, our immediate focus is ensuring the health and safety of our members and their families. Staff from the Provincial Office will be contacting each household over the next few weeks to speak with Caregivers to see if there is anything that we can do to support you through these difficult times.

Starting today, Saskatchewan residents can go to www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 for the latest information regarding COVID-19. It includes information on travel guidance and preventative measures as well as information for care providers.
