Government Proclaims October As Inclusion Month

Released on October 1, 2018


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

Inclusion Month is an opportunity to celebrate the positive difference inclusion has made in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities who are included in the communities where they live.  It also is an opportunity to acknowledge the important work that staff and volunteers of Inclusion Saskatchewan do.

“I’d like to thank Inclusion Saskatchewan and all of those who work with people with intellectual disabilities for the work they do,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “By partnering with community-based organizations, we have been able to work toward the implementation of self-directed funding, so people can choose their own supports and services and invest in supportive housing options for people with intellectual disabilities.  This work and the work still to come is helping create a more inclusive Saskatchewan.”

For more than 60 years, Inclusion Saskatchewan, formerly the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living, has aimed to ensure people with intellectual disabilities are valued, supported and included, and have opportunities and choices in all aspects of life.

“Inclusion is the power to make a difference in people's lives,” Inclusion Saskatchewan President Gloria Mahussier said.  “It means that all people, regardless of their abilities, have the right to be respected and to belong to their communities.  We invite everyone in Saskatchewan to celebrate inclusion with us!”

Saskatchewan residents and communities are encouraged to share their accomplishments and stories surrounding disability using the hashtag #SKDisability.  The Saskatchewan Disability Strategy Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/skdisability.
