Celebrating our partners and their stories

At Conexus, we invest a large portion of our Community Investment Program funds into programs and initiatives that impact the lives of people across Saskatchewan. Working alongside our community partners enables us to deliver on our purpose of improving the financial well-being of our members and our communities. We are committed to not only provide funding but offer resources and the support of our dedicated employee volunteers to ensure successful outcomes while changing lives.

  • From its early days of combating the tuberculosis epidemic to today’s COVID-19 pandemic, Lung Saskatchewan continues to play a vital role to provide valuable education resources, research, support programs and more. Funding provided by Conexus supports the Caring Breaths Financial Assistance Program which helps ease the financial burden that lung disease can bring to patients and their families.
