Government Proclaims AccessAbility Week

Released on May 29, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan is joining many provinces across the country in proclaiming May 27-June 2 as National AccessAbility Week in Saskatchewan.

National AccessAbility Week is a time to promote inclusion and accessibility in communities and workplaces.  It is also a time to recognize the efforts of individuals, communities and workplaces that are actively removing barriers to give Canadians of all abilities a better chance to be included and succeed.

“Accessibility legislation is one of the priority areas for Saskatchewan’s Disability Strategy, as fully accessible communities are foundational to the inclusion of people with disabilities,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “Our government is pleased to proclaim National AccessAbility Week in Saskatchewan and celebrate the work being done across the province to create inclusive and accessible communities.”

Since 1964, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan (SCI Sask) has provided leadership in the development and delivery of programs, services, and resources to Saskatchewan people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities.

“This week prompts citizens, along with community stakeholders, public and private sector and government leaders, to enhance awareness of environmental accessibility, attitudinal acceptance toward diversity and equity, and to encourage action toward changes for full inclusion,” SCI Sask Executive Director Launel J. Scott said.  “Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan takes this opportunity to recognize the contributions of people experiencing disabilities who enrich our communities and our economy.”

This proclamation supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by helping to create awareness and understanding of the rights of people experiencing disabilities.

Saskatchewan residents and communities that have done work which aligns with the Disability Strategy are encouraged to share their accomplishments using the hashtag #SKDisability.  The Saskatchewan Disability Strategy Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/skdisability
