Government Proclaims October as Community Living Month

Released on October 3, 2016

The Government of Saskatchewan has once again proclaimed October as Community Living Month in Saskatchewan. Community Living Month celebrates the staff and volunteers of the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living (SACL) and the invaluable work they do in assisting individuals experiencing intellectual disabilities. SACL’s mission is to ensure that these individuals are supported as well as included, and have opportunities and choices in all aspects of life.
“We have worked with SACL on the transition of individuals from Valley View Centre into the community, developing the self-directed funding model, and many other disability services,” Social Services Minister Tiny Beaudry-Mellor said. “I am pleased to shine a spotlight on their work and celebrate the positive impacts they make in the lives of individuals experiencing disabilities.” 

“Including someone with an intellectual disability in any and all activities can have a profound effect on their happiness and quality of life,” SACL President Gloria Mahussier said. “We invite everyone to join us on our journey to make this province a better place for people of all abilities.” 

“The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to making sustainable programs that are responsive, innovative and accessible so that people experiencing disabilities can live the dignified life they choose,” Beaudry-Mellor said.
In June 2015, a comprehensive Disability Strategy was released by the Government of Saskatchewan. It includes six priority areas including: transportation, respite, accessibility legislation, residential services, service co-ordination and navigation, and awareness/understanding of the rights of people experiencing disabilities.
