    The Department of Justice requires the services of Personal Support Workers (PSW) to address the needs of an employee with disabilities in the Saskatoon regional office.

    An employee with a disability under the Employee Equity Program requires assistance from a PSW services supplier to access and leave the regional office premises in Saskatoon, as well as requiring assistance with the elevators and other personal care duties.

    The attendant care services must be available anywhere between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, five (5) days a week from Monday to Friday, for an average of four (4) to five (5) hours per day, with the possibility of occasional longer or shorter hours, excluding federal government holidays. The exact weekly schedule will be provided in writing to the PSW at the latest on Friday by 5:00 pm for the following week. The Primary PSW or Backup PSW must be available according to the weekly schedule.

    The Contractor will provide a Backup PSW on an as needed basis only, should the Primary PSW not be available for short absences (due to vacation or illness). The Backup PSW must provide the same care aide services as would be required from the Primary PSW. All assigned PSWs must conduct themselves in a manner befitting to a legal office.
