National AccessAbility Week 2024

May 29, 2024

The Government of Saskatchewan has joined provinces across Canada, and Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan (SCI Sask), in proclaiming May 26 to June 1, 2024, as National AccessAbility Week.

National AccessAbility Week is dedicated to celebrating the contributions and leadership of Canadians living with disabilities. It is also focused on promoting efforts to increase inclusion and remove barriers to accessibility across the country.

SCI Sask has supported individuals living with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities since 1964. Through advocacy, education and community engagement, SCI Sask continues to promote accessibility and inclusion and to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.

The Government of Saskatchewan recently conducted a public accessibility survey. The results will help guide the development of the Government’s first Accessibility Plan, which will be publicly posted by December 3, 2024. The plan will include actions to remove and prevent accessibility barriers that persons with disabilities experience when using government facilities, programs, and services.
