Disability Employment Awareness Month Proclaimed In October

Released on September 21, 2020

October has been proclaimed Disability Employment Awareness Month by the Government of Saskatchewan.  The month will help raise awareness on the importance of our workforce being inclusive, and ensuring individuals with disabilities are being given the same opportunities as all residents in the province.  The month is a time to celebrate the many and varied contributions of workers with disabilities.

“We want to see all individuals in Saskatchewan having the opportunity to participate in Saskatchewan’s labour force,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Individuals with disabilities make major contributions to our economy, and I know they will continue to strengthen our businesses and communities right across our great province.”

The Disability Strategy was introduced in the province in 2015 with a goal of making Saskatchewan the best place to live and work in Canada for people with disabilities.

“Businesses and organizations across Saskatchewan benefit immensely by employing people with disabilities,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “You are your strongest when the people who make up your organization truly reflect the diversity of the community you serve.”

“Every year, we continue to see more employers across the province hire people experiencing disability,” SARC Executive Director Amy McNeil said.  “The economic advantages of hiring people experiencing disability contributes to an increase in retention rates and corporate culture, resulting in a reduction of workplace turnover and training costs.”

The Ministry of Immigration and Career Training is committed to helping all Saskatchewan people realize their full employment potential by offering career planning and employment services.
