It’s an incredible, but true story. Public services make life better every day.
Whether it’s clean drinking water to quench your thirst, public parks to play in, or garbage collection that keep our cities and towns clean, public services deliver a lot of value for Saskatchewan families.
Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) are proud of the role we play in providing a reliable network of public services that enrich people’s lives and strengthen communities from one end of the province to the other. (Content by: /NM cope 342)
Did you know…
- Canadians, regardless of income or family type, receive roughly the same dollar value from public services. A Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ 2010 study revealed that an individual Canadian consumes on average $16,952 in public services per year; the average family consumes $41,000 of public services per year. It’s a bargain that is often overlooked.

STAND AGAINST THE CUTS
The 2017-18 provincial budget made deep, harmful cuts to public services in Saskatchewan, while cities and towns were also left with big cuts to funding for local services
Government cuts to the public service hurt everyone.
