"Men of the North founder Christopher Merasty and Town of La Ronge community programmer Avyn Koyl are leading the charge as the community teams up to deliver groceries and essentials to those who can’t leave their homes."
The Men of the North Support Group is an outreach initiative that welcomes all men, regardless of religious or ethnic background and socioeconomic status. Our mission is to provide opportunities that help and encourage men to seek lasting positive mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
We wish to foster an environment that promotes health, recovery, and rehabilitation.
Men in northern Saskatchewan need help. Creating change for men in a positive way is something we would like to achieve.
The outreach services specifically for men in northern Saskatchewan are lacking, and now it is recognized. We want to play a role in ensuring that positive change occurs. Our target group is all men of any ethnic background.
Join Us At Our Next Meeting
Men of the North meets weekly in the La Ronge area. If you are interested in sitting in on one of our meetings, we'd love to have you. Take a look at our schedule, or reach out to us!

"'Men of the North' support group making a difference for men in La Ronge"
"From a man who was feeling depressed and suicidal before the first meeting, who is now having less of those thoughts and feelings, to a youth who has noticed a change in his father who is attending meetings, Merasty said he feels like he's making a difference."
