New Staff at SAIPA!

SAIPA is very excited to announce that our current Executive Director, Sharon Rempel, will be leaving us for a year to welcome a new baby to her family and in her absence Anna Olson, long term employee of SAIPA, will be taking over the Executive Director role.
Anna has been with SAIPA for almost 5 years and does an excellent job supporting Self-Advocacy and is well known within the disability services field. Anna has her Degree in Community Disability and Rehabilitation Services and is passionate about the work she completes at SAIPA, in the field and with the Self-Advocacy movement. As always, you can contact Anna at the SAIPA office (403) 320-1515 or via email

During this time, we have also temporarily filled Anna’s Advocacy Coordinator with Eline Van der Kooij. Eline joins SAIPA as a recent university graduate whose focus was her degree in Social Work. Eline is excited to work in the disability services field and brings a new and invigorating passion to the SAIPA team! You can contact Eline at the SAIPA office (403) 320-1515 or via email

As always, thank you for the support and partnership you provide to SAIPA!
