Ministry of Justice

The Ministry of Justice and Attorney General provides a fair justice system that upholds the law and protects the rights of all individuals in Saskatchewan; promotes safe and secure communities; and provides legal and justice policy advice to government. SASS is core funded by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice. 

Ministry of Corrections & Policing and Ministry of Advanced Education

The Ministry of Corrections and Policing is responsible for overseeing Saskatchewan’s correctional system and facilities, and for providing guidance and support to Saskatchewan’s municipal police services. The ministry also works closely with the RCMP to support law enforcement activity in rural Saskatchewan.

The Ministry of Advanced Education is responsible for developing a skilled and educated workforce that meets the needs of Saskatchewan’s labour market. The ministry works with the private sector, educational institutions and community organizations to develop, retain and attract skilled workers. We also work with educational institutions to recruit and retain international students, and assist First Nations and Métis learners.

Both ministries funded the Violence Against Women Advocate Case Review.

Women and Gender Equity Canada (WAGE)

Status of Women Canada works to advance equality for women by focusing its efforts in three priority areas: increasing women’s economic security and prosperity; encouraging women’s leadership and democratic participation; and ending gender-based violence. Status of Women Canada also plays a leadership role in the government-wide implementation of Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+).

The Sexual Violence Action Plan was funded by WAGE.
