YXE People Connect is a one-stop shop for vulnerable members of our community to access services & resources in one place, on one day.

The Saskatoon community is excited to host the first annual “YXE People Connect” event. This is an event that brings together community agencies, companies, and service providers to deliver housing supports, health care, and services to those who may be facing housing instability, homelessness or who may be at risk of homelessness.

  • Support for Indigenous Peoples
