Text: Repair Cafe

A Repair Cafe is a pop-up, one day event where the public can bring in household items to be fixed for free by volunteers. 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. 

Thank you to Affinity Credit Union for the continued support to spread Repair Cafes across the province!

The next Repair Cafes in the province are:

Date: June 3rd, 2023
Time: 1-4pm

Date: October 14th, 2023

Each event is unique, meaning the types of volunteers that will offer advice will vary. Some examples could include:

  • Computers
  • Audio/Visual Equipment
  • Wooden Items
  • Small Engines (Saskatoon only)
  • Clothing and Textiles
  • Darning
  • Small Electronics
