Government Proclaims October as Community Living Month

Released on October 2, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan has once again proclaimed October as Community Living Month in Saskatchewan.

Community Living Month celebrates the important work that staff and volunteers of the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living (SACL) do in supporting individuals experiencing intellectual disabilities.  SACL’s mission is to ensure that people experiencing intellectual disabilities are valued, supported and included, and have opportunities and choices in all aspects of life.

“This month we have the opportunity to highlight SACL and the work they do to make Saskatchewan a more inclusive province,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “Working together, SACL and other community-based organizations are helping us to make the vision a reality in Saskatchewan’s Disability Strategy.”

“The SACL is pleased to celebrate Community Living Month with a variety of activities and events that are designed to raise awareness about the value of inclusion in communities throughout Saskatchewan,” SACL President Gloria Mahussier said.  “We would like to thank the Government of Saskatchewan for declaring October as Community Living Month.”

In June 2015, a comprehensive Disability Strategy was released by the Citizens Consultation Team and in December 2015, the Government of Saskatchewan released its 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.

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.
