The Mission of Meewasinota CRF is to create a safe and protective environment that provides each resident with an opportunity to successfully reintegrate back into their families and community in a holistic manner.

Meewasinota is a 36 bed co-ed facility near the downtown heart of Saskatoon. All rooms are private with shared common areas and bathrooms. Meewasinota accepts clientele from all walks of life and is sensitive to all aspects of an individual's reintegration journey.
