Saskatoon Community Clinic is a health cooperative that began in 1962 and played a pivotal role in establishing medicare in Canada. All of its work is community-driven, delivered by interdisciplinary teams and based on core values including collaboration, accountability, engagement, equity and being people-centred. One of the clinic’s most important roles is to advocate to improve both health and social services. This has been most evident during the covid-19 pandemic.
Executive Director Lisa Clatney shares the history of the clinic, the cooperative difference and innovations over the past year in this interesting interview (https://eachforall.coop/saskatoon-community-clinic/).
