” It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. ” – Anne Frank
We are seeing so much good in our neighbourhood and throughout the city, so many offers of help and simple acts of kindness. Sending out warm wishes to all of you in the neighbourhoods of Hudson Bay Park, Mayfair and Kelsey Woodlawn.
During these very challenging times when information can change daily or even hourly, we encourage you to check your local Saskatoon and Saskatchewan online pages for updates from time to time. This Community Association facebook page is maintained by volunteers, so updates on every change or new information cannot be posted in a timely enough manner. We want you to be able to access information as you need it, so please use the links below for local information.
Your City of Saskatoon page and a couple of other useful resources will be left pinned here at the top of this page so they can be easily found.

Wishing you and your family good health, much needed patience, and the kindess of others during this difficult time.
A number of people in the city are volunteering to shop for and deliver groceries to city residents unable to go out at this time. If you’d like to be part of the volunteer group, there is a Facebook page, see Facebook link below for more information.
The Community Association is sharing information during the current pandemic.
If you or someone you know is unable to go out to get their groceries due to illness, self-isolation, injury or other, you can request help on the below page. This is a volunteer-run operation by various people in the city, and is not run by the Community Association. We are just passing on information. Please read all information on the form below.
We can do this. A strong community looks out for others, and in challenging times, it’s important to take care of ourselves but also remember to check in on others even if we don’t know them well.
– Someone might not be able to get out to get their groceries and we could grab something for them and drop if off at their door, or we might make their day simply by asking if they’re doing okay.
– Another person might be the main caregiver for a family member who is unwell or be caring for young children without any help, and helping shovel or running a short errand for them could be the difference in their day.
– Someone might be an anxious person or dealing with depression, and a neighbour reaching out to them in some small way could help them get through another day.
– A simple “hi” as you walk past and small talk about the weather might be enough for someone to feel some things can still be fairly normal despite the current situation.
Go for a walk if you can, or sit in the back yard and get some fresh air. Go tobogganing or cross country skiing. Put on some music you like. Play cards or board games. Visit a neighbourhood Little Library / book exhange while the libraries are closed, call or text a friend or relative. Reach out and stay connected to others.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and manageable week.
Thank you to all our indoor program participants for their support to the HBPMKW Community Association.
Our first priority is your wellbeing and health safety. With the confirmation of the first case of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Saskatchewan, the school divisions are taking proactive measures to prevent spread of the illness and all school bookings are cancelled until April 19; our community is supporting this decision.
All indoor programs are cancelled, we are assessing the situation and further details will be made available as soon as possible
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
