Province Proclaims International Day Of Persons With Disabilities

Released on December 3, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan has joined the world in recognizing and celebrating December 3 as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities was first proclaimed by the United Nations in 1992 to promote the rights and well-being of people with disabilities, and to increase awareness and understanding of disability issues.  This year’s theme is The Future is Accessible.

As announced in the 2019 Speech from the Throne and as part of the recently released Saskatchewan Growth Plan, the Government of Saskatchewan is working to create new provincial accessibility legislation aimed at removing and preventing accessibility barriers to people with disabilities.

“All people should be able to work, live and play without barriers in this province,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “We believe Saskatchewan should be a place where all people, no matter their abilities, can participate in their communities.”

The CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization that delivers programs and advocacy to empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion.

“CNIB has a goal to boost engagement in the world of work for individuals who are blind or partially sighted,” Saskatchewan CNIB Foundation Executive Director Christall Beaudry said.  “We applaud the Government of Saskatchewan for their recent commitment to connect youth with disabilities to employers.  Let's welcome everyone to 'Come to Work' to build a brighter future for our community!”

The Saskatchewan Disability Strategy is the framework for improving the lives of people with disabilities in Saskatchewan.  The strategy, which was released in June 2015, sets the vision of a Saskatchewan that is welcoming, responsive, innovative and accessible so people with disabilities can live the life they choose.
