Government Proclaims Disability Service Professionals Week

Released on May 25, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed May 25-29, as Disability Service Professionals Week.  Disability Service Professionals Week celebrates the important work that people across the province do to provide support to people with disabilities.  Many in the disability sector are deemed essential services and have continued to support their clients in recent weeks.

“Disability service professionals are playing a tremendous role in assuring the safety of people with disabilities during this pandemic,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “I want to thank them for their work during this time and for the work they do each and every day providing services for people with disabilities.”

Established in 1968, Saskatchewan Association of Rehabilitation Centres (SARC) is a provincial association representing approximately 100 member agencies, with more than 76 providing core, daily services to thousands of people with disabilities across Saskatchewan.

Each agency is an independent community-based organization with its own independent board of directors.  Many of these agencies deliver residential and day program services and supports to people with intellectual disabilities.

“SARC Members are a large workforce of incredibly hardworking professionals who are committed to serving their community and providing excellent supports for people experiencing disability every day,” SARC Executive Director Amy McNeil said.  “Amidst this pandemic, the critical nature of their work has possibly never been more apparent.  Let’s take some time this week to celebrate our sector and acknowledge the essential work and services provided by those who work in it.”

This proclamation supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by recognizing the value of disability service providers and direct-support workers who provide services for 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.
