MN–S Métis Patient Cancer Care Guidebook and Journal
Over the last two years, the Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) Health Department has spent time engaging Métis cancer patients and families in the north, central and south regions of the province to identify gaps in service. Through that dedicated process, MN–S has published the Métis Patient Cancer Care Guidebook and Journal. These resources provide Métis cancer patients with culturally relevant and accessible information, including travel program details and a list of available services and supports for easy reference.
The development of these important resources would not have been possible without the support of our partners at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA), USask Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC), and the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).
The Métis Patient Cancer Care Guidebook is here. The Journal is here.
You Can Quit Smoking, MN–S Can Help
Trying to quit smoking or vaping is a challenge for anyone. It’s a hard habit to break and cessation therapies and treatments are expensive.

The Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) Reimbursement Program is designed to help citizens access effective smoking reduction medicines and therapies and reimburse a portion of the associated costs.
