Office of Disability Issues

The Office of Disability Issues (ODI), hosted by the Ministry of Social Services, provides leadership and coordination on disability policy across government ministries, the disability community and the public to help make Saskatchewan a more inclusive province.   

ODI also works with other levels of governments such as municipalities, the Saskatchewan Health Authority, school divisions and the private sector to build support and momentum for the changes needed to create greater opportunities for people with disabilities in their communities. 

ODI is also the developer and lead for Saskatchewan’s Disability Strategy which has the vision of a Saskatchewan that is welcoming, responsive, innovative, and accessible so people with disabilities can live the life they choose.
