Thank you for taking the time to visit the website of SaskAbilities. As President of the Board of Directors, I hope you find the site helpful and informative.
SaskAbilities began as a grassroots organization almost 70 years ago. Over time, SaskAbilities developed into an organization with several locations across the province. Vocational, rehabilitation and recreational programming is provided to support individuals experiencing disability. Board and staff members work together to meet the vision and mission in a financially sustainable and respectful way.
Looking back over the years, I know from firsthand experience that SaskAbilities is an organization that strives to remain relevant in response to ever-changing community needs. My first encounter with SaskAbilities was as a camper at Camp Easter Seal. Over the course of my life, I have also been a staff member, a client, and a volunteer Board member. These experiences have enriched my life, and I am pleased to continue my close relationship with SaskAbilities as President.
The Board of SaskAbilities is committed to good governance. We regularly review our governance model and policies to ensure the Board fulfils its oversight role effectively and efficiently. We appreciate the support of our membership – your confidence in us inspires us to be the best we can be. I look forward to continuing this important work.
