Service Description

Allows residents to experience family living in a community setting with the opportunity to develop social, recreational, and living skills according to their unique abilities. 

Operators of the Approved Private-Service Homes often engage in the following:

  • participation in a Person-Centred Planning process, which allows people with intellectual disabilities to realize their goals, dreams, and aspirations;
  • supporting people to make choices and to experience a meaningful life;
  • helping people learn daily living skills;
  • supporting the individual in their spiritual and cultural expression;
  • providing and encouraging a healthy diet and lifestyle; and
  • helping individuals experience community inclusion and participate in leisure and recreation activities.


Individuals with intellectual disabilities who are 18 years of age or older and meet the eligibility requirements for services from the Community Living Service Delivery are eligible to live in Approved Private Service Homes. Residents of Saskatchewan who are over the age of 18 and who are prepared to complete the certification process are eligible to apply to become an Approved Private Service Home Operator.

Application Process

For information on the Approved Private Service Homes program for residents or operators, please contact the Community Living Service Delivery office nearest to you or call 306-787-3848.

To become certified as an Approved Private Service Home operator, you must:
- complete an application;
