People Before Systems: Transforming the Experience of Disability in Saskatchewan
In the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth, as well as the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Speeches from the Throne, Government committed to developing a Disability Strategy in consultation with the disability community. The Disability Strategy will provide the framework to transform disability programs and services to meet Government's goal of making Saskatchewan the best place in Canada to live for people with disabilities.
Released in June 2015, the Disability Strategy looks to address and identify the support and service needs of children and adults who experience disability – whether physical, sensory, psychiatric, cognitive or intellectual.
