Stop the Cuts is an organization for everyone in Saskatchewan affected by or deeply concerned about the recent cuts, privatization, and elimination of public services in the recent budget.

Schools, public libraries, universities, the Saskatchewan Transportation Company, NORTEP (Northern Teacher Education Program), NORPAC (Northern Professional Access College), pastoral and funeral services, the hearing aid programme, road safety, municipal services, reforestation and parks, Community Justice... that's a pretty big group of us affected.

Sign up for Stop the Cuts updates here.

To get organized, keep everyone informed, and grow our numbers, we need everyone who cares to sign up to the Stop the Cuts Announcement List.

Why? Though we have a Facebook page, Facebook does not show you all of the posts on our page in your feed.

Sign up and get emailed when important, large and collective actions are being held to effectively resist the cuts. You will be able to unsubscribe at any time.

What's Cut

Responsible governments do not slash and burn necessary services in order to service debt. An economic downturn is a good reason to protect and expand these services, not sell them off or cut them.

  • Healthcare
  • Seniors' Long Term Care
  • Income support
  • Community Justice
  • Meewasin Valley Authority
  • PST exemptions on childrens' clothing

These cuts are happening alongside:

  • An increase in the PST
  • Tax breaks for corporations
  • Tax breaks for high income earners
  • 100s of eliminations of public service jobs
  • Pressure to reduce teacher salaries and other public workers' wages

Note: The list above will be a comprehensive list of everything that's been cut, privatized, or eliminated by the Wall government in the 2017-18 budget. In our full website (being launched soon), these items will link to research on the impacts of the cuts in that area.

We will be adding and updating research in our What's Cut section as we learn more about the cuts.

Please email info@stopthecutssk.ca if you have information about more areas and programmes being cut. Thanks!

What's next

Protest at the Premier's Fundraiser at Prairieland Park

April 27, 5 to 7 PM // 503 Ruth St. W., Saskatoon

Protest at the Premier's Fundraiser at Prairieland Park

Let's all come together to express our opposition to the Provincial budget cuts to K - 12 education, libraries, Universities, Audiology, social services, the handing over of Nortep to Northlands College, and the decision to "wind down" the provincial Crown, STC!

While the Premier and his Sask Party buddies are at a $250/plate event, we'll be protesting outside.

We'll be posting more details about the event as they develop!
