North 49 Physical Therapy
North 49 opened in 2010 with the goal of improving the quality of life for residents of Saskatoon and our province through addressing the musculoskeletal and vestibular barriers that impact one’s ability to perform the important things in life. The important things in life can include playing a particular sport, playing guitar, working, or picking up a grandchild. Given such our client spectrum is diverse to include children to seniors and weekend warriors to professional athletes.
North 49 has been a preferred provider under the Bridges Health Managed Abilities Program and Rapid Response for workplace injuries since 2010. Our collaborative values and beliefs are to focus on the individual’s abilities rather than disabilities.

The Do More Agriculture Foundation
The Do More Ag Foundation is champion for the mental well-being of all Canadian producers and is changing the culture of agriculture to one where all producers are encouraged, supported, and empowered to take care of their mental wellbeing.
Agriculture is an industry with a foundation of deep rural roots, hard work, resilience, strength, and community. In order to uphold that image, those traits can also be the industry’s weakness as they become barriers for speaking up and seeking help. Producers are among the most vulnerable when it comes to mental health issues. Stress, anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion, and burnout are all high among producers. By collaborating with the entire industry and those working to address the state of mental health in agriculture, they can and will make a substantial impact!
Bridges Health is a proud Community Partner of Do More, contributing to supporting all agricultural producers across Canada to take care of their mental wellbeing. Collaboratively, our goal is to raise awareness about mental health and breaking the stigma, while also helping to build a community of support and resources for those affected.
