New Day Program Opens In Saskatoon With Provincial Support

Released on January 31, 2020

Today, Social Services Minister Paul Merriman celebrated the grand opening of a new SaskAbilities day program for people with intellectual disabilities.  The government provided $140,000 in capital startup funding for the project, as well as more than $134,000 in yearly funding.

“Day programs not only make our communities more inclusive, but they often provide employment, life skills and social outlets for people with intellectual disabilities,” Merriman said.  “Our government appreciates the support SaskAbilities provides people with disabilities and values our continued partnership.”

For 70 years, SaskAbilities has been supporting people with intellectual disabilities through recreational, rehabilitation and vocational programs.

“SaskAbilities is thrilled to welcome individuals to our third day program in Saskatoon,” SaskAbilities, Saskatoon Branch Program Manager Emily Hurd said.  “This new program space, developed with generous funding from the Ministry of Social Services, provides individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to engage with their community, develop new skills and to make new connections.  It is so rewarding to support individuals in achieving their unique goals.”

This new day program supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by creating opportunities for inclusion.  Saskatchewan residents and communities that have done work that aligns with the Disability Strategy are encouraged to share their accomplishments using the hashtag #SKDisability.
