Government Proclaims AccessAbility Week

Released on June 1, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is joining many provinces across the country in proclaiming May 31-June 6, as National AccessAbility Week.

National AccessAbility Week in Saskatchewan is a time to promote inclusion and accessibility in communities and workplaces.  It is also a time to recognize the efforts of individuals, communities and workplaces that are actively removing barriers to give Saskatchewan people with disabilities an equal chance to participate in their communities.  This year’s national theme is “Because I can.”

“In our government’s new Plan for Growth, we committed to engaging the province to create accessibility legislation for Saskatchewan,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “I want to reaffirm our commitment to implementing Saskatchewan’s Disability Strategy by creating accessibility legislation that will remove and prevent accessibility barriers for people with disabilities.”

Since 1964, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan has provided leadership in the development and delivery of programs, services, and resources to Saskatchewan people living with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities.

“During these uncertain times of navigating through a pandemic, supporting people living with disabilities remains a priority,” Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Executive Director Launel Scott said.  “The impact of day-to-day challenges experienced by everyone are heightened, and demonstrate the need to move forward in strategies that will enhance access to services across Saskatchewan.  As communities and organizations are not in a position to host physical events during National AccessAbility Week 2020, we will applaud the efforts of many individuals and sectors for the enhancement of accessibility and inclusion through social media opportunities.”

This proclamation supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by helping to create awareness and understanding of the rights of people with 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.
