Government is committed to making Saskatchewan the best place in Canada for persons with disabilities to live. Together with the disability community and all Saskatchewan citizens, the Province is developing a comprehensive disability strategy to make this a reality.
The Strategy will focus on the priority areas specified in the Plan for Growth: housing; transportation; employment; education; support for community inclusion; and support for caregivers. Other priorities may be identified during the consultation process.
A fifteen member Citizen Consultation Team (CCT), appointed by the Minister of Social Services, has been tasked with leading the public forums that will start April 28th, 2014 in Swift Current and will continue across the province throughout the month of May 2014.
The public forums are an opportunity for you and/or your organization to: identify issues specific to your experience with disability; share your ideas on how to improve programs, services and opportunities for people who experience disability; and, give your perspective on other potential pieces of the Strategy, such as the common understanding of disability and the vision, values and principles.
Ensure that you and your members get involved in the discussion!
