SaskAbilities’ vision of “working together to build inclusive communities for people of all abilities” has assisted and will continue to assist thousands of individuals in Saskatchewan each year to optimize their life in their communities.
SaskAbilities has been serving individuals experiencing disability since 1950. Programs and services continue to evolve to meet individual needs through supports for independent living, employment and training, and community engagement.
Through a process of person-centred assessments and supports, individualized plans are developed for each individual to enhance their life.
We treat people with respect, honesty, and compassion.
Our programs and services are client-centred, goal-orientated, and accountable.
We value teamwork, excellence, and innovation.
SaskAbilities serves the entire province through its office in Saskatoon, Regina, Swift Current, Moose Jaw, Yorkton and Manitou Lake for Camp Easter Seal.
SaskAbilities serves about 60,000 individuals per year – the service can range from a one-time distribution of a special needs equipment item to daily supports in some of our community programs.
SaskAbilities builds inclusive communities by:
- Providing a range of independent living services like orthopaedics, special needs equipment, adaptive technology services, access transit, residential services, and the accessible parking program which allows individuals to interact in their communities as independently as possible by accommodating their disability;
- Offering community support programs like day programs, Camp Easter Seal, Crisis Prevention and Support, Partners in Mental Health and Well-Being, Summer Fun which facilitate participation in mainstream community functioning;
- Helping individuals experiencing disability to train for and secure employment in the community through our supported employment programs.
