The Saskatoon Ostomy Association is a non-profit mutual support society for the benefit of people who have had, or are about to have, Ostomy surgery.

Our Purpose

The purpose of our chapter is to:

  1. Assist the medical profession in the rehabilitation of ostomates by providing, at the request of the physician, reassurance and emotional support.
  2. To promote up-to-date information concerning Ostomy care and equipment to ostomates, and those involved in their care.
  3. To educate, develop, and promote public awareness and understanding of ostomies.

Welcome

It doesn’t matter the reason, we welcome you and are here to help and support you (your family and friends too) in any way we can. Most people have never heard of the word “Ostomy” and most of us never talk about or bowels or bladder or urine or stool, it is usually a private and personal matter. At Saskatoon Ostomy Association, we do talk about urine and stool, bladders and bowels. We are not embarrassed or ashamed. We just had a body part that did not work because of different reasons but we ended up with an ostomy.
