Federal and provincial farm women's support has been eroding in recent years. Until this research, there had been no systematic examination of this support and its erosion. In this Participatory Action Research (PAR), initiated by the Saskatchewan Women's Agricultural Network (SWAN), the researchers explored five major components related to the erosion of farm women's support programs in Saskatchewan:

Aboriginal groups have unique cultures with different languages and traditions that influence self-identify, and should not be thought of as a homogeneous group. Furthermore, this confusion of terms has particular implications in the realm of health care, because terminology, identity and legal status have direct bearing on who receives what health benefits. More often than not, when
looking at health services, it is more suitable to recognize the differences between First Nations, Métis and Inuit women.
This paper was written for both health researchers and policy-makers to examine the legal entitlements for health care services, clarify the terminology, and most importantly to demonstrate how they affect the women seeking health services. This understanding can then be taken into account in new research and policy development. In keeping with Prairie Women’s Health Centre
of Excellence’s mandate, specific to Manitoba and Saskatchewan, this paper is focused in those two provinces. The discussion in this paper focuses on First Nations and Métis people, who comprise the vast majority of Aboriginal people in the two provinces.

The Northwest Métis Women’s Health Research Project investigated the health care
needs of elderly women and their caregivers in the Métis community of Buffalo
Narrows, Saskatchewan. The research project looked at access to home care and longterm
care services for elderly women in the particular demographic, social, cultural and
economic context of northern Métis communities. The goal of the project was to
recommend appropriate home care and long term care policies for northern Métis
communities and to ensure that these policies will be responsive to women’s needs as
care recipients, care providers and caregivers. By looking at the specific needs of
women, the research project hoped to raise awareness of gender as an important factor to
consider in developing and implementing policies related to care of the elderly.
