With the help of volunteers that will be offering their knowledge and skills, Repair Cafés encourage us to consider repairing items rather than throwing them away. 

This October, Saskatchewan will have in-person events in Regina and Saskatoon as well as a virtual event, all presented by Affinity Credit Union. The Virtual Repair Café will be a zoom event where volunteers will give advice and instructions to help anyone in the world tackle repairing their broken items.

Our volunteers will offer advice in the following categories:

  • Computers
  • Audio/Visual Equipment
  • Wooden Items (Saskatoon and Virtual only)
  • Welding (Saskatoon only)
  • Small Engines (Saskatoon and Virtual only)
  • Clothing and Textiles
  • Darning
  • Small Electronics
  • Bike Repair
  • General Repairs

If you are unsure if your item is a fit, get in touch and we will try to find a volunteer to help you out.

IN-PERSON - Saskatoon and Regina

  • Walk-ins will be welcome but we strongly encourage booking an appointment as we would like to spread out the visitors and limit the number of people in the building at one time. Appointments will be prioritized over walk-ins, so book ahead to avoid waiting! Masks will be mandatory.

VIRTUAL

  • Appointments are required for the virtual event as we will not be posting the Zoom link publicly. All scheduled appointments will receive an email with the Zoom link closer to October 23rd. This link will bring you to the event host who will send you to a virtual room with your Repair Coach.

Although there is no deadline for booking an appointment, we recommend booking by October 2nd to ensure we have a volunteer that has the expertise you need.

Register here to volunteer as a repair coach for the Regina, Saskatoon or Virtual events.

If you'd like to host a Repair Café in your city or town, contact SWRC and we can provide resources and advice!

We want to thank Repair Café International and the Fixit Clinic for resources and inspiration and Affinity Credit Union for being our Presenting Sponsor.
