College of Emmanuel and St. Chad - Emmanuel College was founded at Prince Albert in 1879. An Act of the Dominion Parliament established and incorporated the college as "The University of Saskatchewan" in 1883. When the provincial government established its own university in Saskatoon in 1909, Emmanuel College moved to that city and, while retaining its university status, relinquished its charter title to the new university taking as its new name, The University of Emmanuel College. St. Chad's College was established in Regina in 1907, where it continued its work until 1964; the year it amalgamated with Emmanuel College. Together they formed the College of Emmanuel & St. Chad, continuing as an affiliate college of the University of Saskatchewan. The Provincial Synod of May 1967 formally recognized the College of Emmanuel & St. Chad as the official accredited Theological College for the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert's Land. The student body includes postulants from the dioceses of this Province and various other provinces of the Anglican Communion

Sorrento Centre - Thousands visit the Sorrento Centre each year to engage their heart, mind, and spirit; to be inspired, meet old friends and make new ones.  They come to rest and relax in a place of great beauty.  Arts and culture, music, environment, theology, social and economic justice - these are just a sample of how our programs are deep and diverse.  Our work with youth, from children to young adults, is well-respected.  We are multi-generational - and provide a safe place for family to gather and a place of transformation for learning, healing and belonging.

Shalom Counselling Centre - “Shalom Counselling Centre opens the door to hope, healing, and wholeness for the families of Central Alberta. Individuals, couples and families who are in need of quality counselling will have a place to come to find peace. […] “Shalom" is an old word rich in meaning. Shalom describes a deep inner peace and a sense of well-being. Too often day to day troubles rob us of the shalom our hearts desire. Our wish for you is that you would experience shalom. We experience shalom when we are at peace within ourselves, with others and with God.”

Habitat for Humanity, Red Deer - “With the help of dedicated donors and volunteers, we continue to increase this number each year. Habitat for Humanity Red Deer Region Society is part of an international, non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping Central Alberta families build better lives through affordable homeownership. We build homes in partnership with qualifying low-income, working families through a no-down-payment, interest-free mortgage program.”

Lacombe Community Refugee Effort - "LCRE is a Lacombe based community group consisting of several community members and churches. Our aim is to share our beautiful, safe and welcoming community with those suffering persecution or violence and an otherwise desolate future."

Diocese of the Arctic - "The mission of the Diocese of the Arctic is as follows: to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God, as revealed through the life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the power of the Holy Spirit; and to enable all members of the Church to live out their Christian calling in parishes, the wider church, in society at large, and in the world."
