Council on Aging

The Saskatoon Council on Aging (SCOA) is a non-profit organization and a community leader in the promotion of dignity, health and independence of older adults through programs, services, education and awareness.

Due to the loss of financial support from the Saskatoon Health region, the Coming of Age newsletter will no longer be mailed out to members. SCOA continues to assess alternate distribution methods. E-mail subscribers will continue to receive copies via email.
If you wish to receive SCOA publications by email, contact SCOA 306-652-2255. The Coming of Age can be viewed/downloaded from their website:
