Sturgeon Lake First Nation, Saskatchewan

The ACCESS space came together because of the hard work of youth in Sturgeon Lake First Nation. Along with community members and leaders, youth planned for and renovated the space which is now open. ACCESS team members can help support links to care and support as needed or request by youth. The ACCESS team and youth council have fundraising and other events planned to engage the community in the project.
