Saskatchewan Designates October as Disability Employment Awareness Month

Released on October 4, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed October as Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM).  

A diverse and inclusive workforce holds immense economic potential for businesses and communities.  The month is a time to celebrate the many and varied contributions of workers with disabilities, and will help raise awareness on the importance of inclusiveness in our workforce. 

"Individuals with disabilities make significant contributions to businesses and our communities," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  "We want to ensure that they continue to have the same opportunities as all residents to fully participate in Saskatchewan's labour force and economy."

The Disability Strategy was introduced in the province in June 2015 with a goal of making Saskatchewan the best place to live and work in Canada for people with disabilities.  It also provides ambitious recommendations for how to improve the lives of people with disabilities in the province.

"We all benefit from diverse workforces and accessible workplaces," Social Services Minister Lori Carr said.  "Having a truly inclusive province means everyone can participate and can access meaningful employment, which we are proud to celebrate this month."

"Employers who have created an inclusive workplace have a proven record of more engaged employees, increased job retention, and a positive corporate culture, simply by hiring people experiencing disability," SARC Executive Director Amy McNeil said.  "We often hear from inclusive employers how grateful they are to have found an untapped pool of skilled workers who contribute every day to their business goals.  Throughout October, SARC and SARC Members will be celebrating inclusive Saskatchewan employers during DEAM."

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 programs.

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact the Ministry at 1-833-613-0485 or careerservices@gov.sk.ca to book an appointment to discuss available programs and services.
