The Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program is a partnership among Sask Sport Inc., SaskCulture Inc. and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc.and assists in the development of sport, culture and recreation programs by providing funds to non-profit community organizations operated by volunteers.

The goal of this program is to get people involved in sport, culture and recreation activities by enabling communities to address the needs of local residents. If the community grant is more than $2,000, a portion of the total grant must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations such as indigenous people, seniors, women, the economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability, and single-parent families. The under-represented requirement can be met by including these populations in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs.

One Book, One Province Project

on .

Courtesy of Saskatchewan Libraries Association:

In March, 2018, the Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) will embark on the second One Book, One Province project, following on the heels of the successful adoption of The Education of Augie Merasty: A Residential School Memoir for 2017.

The One Book, One Province project is a province-wide reading initiative that encourages Saskatchewan residents to read, discuss, and engage in programs around our selected title. One Book, One Province brings Saskatchewan residents together to create community around reading and libraries, and prompt discussions on the multicultural history of Saskatchewan.

Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens written by Amy Jo Ehman and published by MacIntyre Purcell has been chosen as the 2018 selection. Filled with captivating accounts of homesteading and settlement history, archival photos and stories of many cultures--Métis, German, Ukrainian and Scandinavian--are told as we see the history of Saskatchewan from the dinner table.

Amy Jo Ehman describes traditional ethnic foods and relates these to the incredible diversity of Saskatchewan, and in the process provides us with time-worn recipes for many of these dishes.

                -Alan Anderson, author of Settling Saskatchewan

The essence of the project is to encourage Saskatchewan people to read the same book during the month of March, 2018. The overarching theme guiding the book selection is Tolerance and Understanding, and in adopting this single title as our focus, one of our goals is to encourage Saskatchewan readers to explore their culture, ethnicity and heritage through their multicultural roots as it is manifested in the foods we eat.

SLA would like to invite you, as a cultural organization in this province, to participate. Participation could include forming a book club or discussion group, mounting a display, creating responsive artwork, or any project that invites discussion about the book. While SLA cannot provide funding to assist with your project, we will acknowledge your organization on our website using your logo and by promoting your project through our communication channels including social media and a monthly newsletter that reaches over 1500 people and organizations.
