The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) is a trade union established in 1974 under the Saskatchewan Trade Union Act. SUN represents Registered Nurses (RNs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) and graduates employed in rural and urban:

  • acute care hospitals;

  • long-term care facilities;

  • home care services;

  • integrated facilities;

  • public and mental health services;

  • schools; and

  • Canadian Blood Services offices.

SUN members work in a single discipline – registered nursing. They work in both preventative and treatment settings; they work alone and in teams. In all settings, SUN members must practice in accordance with standards set by the professional associations: the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS) and the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of Saskatchewan (RPNAS).

It is our goal to achieve safe and healthy practice environments for all SUN members. Under the Saskatchewan Employment Act, SUN is obligated to:

  • bargain terms and conditions of employment for our members, and once in place, assist nurses in enforcing those conditions; and

  • fairly represent every member in a grievance or rights arbitration in a manner that is not arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith.

SUN is affiliated with, and a proud member of, the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU), the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL).

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term used to describe impacts on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol. It is a life-long neurodevelopmental disorder that occurs in all cultures and levels of society causing mild to severe impairment in physical, cognitive, sensory and behavioural development.

In Saskatchewan, a group of dedicated parents came together to form the FASD Network (the Network) in response to the lack of services available for families impacted by FASD. Now, over 20 years later, the Network is a community-based, provincial organization with offices in Saskatoon and Regina. The organization continues to work towards the mission laid out by its founders “to enhance the lives of individuals and families living with FASD”. Through support, training, and events the Network provides services to individuals and families living with FASD and provides education across the province.
