Safe & Healthy Communities is guided and operated entirely by volunteers. 

A volunteer Board of Directors oversees the organization, providing strategic leadership and overall direction to the agency.

Each safety area is addressed by a committee of volunteers who create and deliver the programs and initiatives in that area. Together, these committees work to address the safety and injury prevention issues most concerning to our community.

The continued commitment and dedication of these volunteers allows Safe & Healthy Communities to ensure that Assiniboia & area is safe for all its community members.

HISTORY

Assiniboia & area was designated a safe community in 2010 by Safe Communities Canada becoming the 59th community in Canada and only the 3rd community in Saskatchewan to receive a safe community designation.

To determine the focus of the organization, a priority setting exercise was held with community partners to identify areas of safety concerns in the Assiniboia area. The exercise brought together members of local government, public safety, emergency services, non-government organizations, public health, public education, government organizations, and community supporters. Together, they evaluated the needs of the community and determined the four strategic areas of focus that are now the organization's working committees. 

Since that time, Safe & Healthy Communities has been active in the area forming partnerships with a variety of agencies and organizations to work collaboratively to promote safety, manage risk, provide education, create awareness and prevent injury.
