As I complete my second year as President of the Board of Directors, I am proud to be a member of a team that continues to support the creation of vibrant and inclusive communities throughout our province. Our team includes dedicated funders, community partners, volunteers, and staff members who engage with communities through the great programs SaskAbilities offers. It is heartwarming to see the many success stories that result from the good work we do while connecting with thousands of individuals experiencing disability.
The governance of our organization truly reflects our client-centred approach. The Board is focused on ensuring that SaskAbilities is managed in accordance with its vision, mission and values. In September 2018, the Board conducted a review of its governance structure and practices and made several improvements. With this review, directors remain committed to ensuring that SaskAbilities is a well-governed organization that will continue to support Saskatchewan communities with the highest standard of service.
In the pages that follow, you will see great examples of the good work that happens throughout the organization. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their continued support of SaskAbilities and its programs.
Executive Director’s Message
It is truly rewarding to serve individuals who experience disability in our province through vocational, rehabilitation, and recreational services. The implementation of our 2017 brand renewal is now complete and the membership approved amended articles that describe the purpose of SaskAbilities. This important document guides staff members as they serve the people of Saskatchewan.
I am so grateful for the many funders, donors, partners, businesses, community organizations, volunteers and stakeholders who have supported SaskAbilities in so many ways. What we accomplish and the difference we make in people’s lives are realized through the collaborative efforts of many.
I would also like to thank staff members, whom I am so proud to work with every day. You engage and connect to our communities with such dedication as you continually strive to improve client experiences. Working together, we can accomplish our goal for people of all abilities to experience inclusiveness and enhance their lives.
As an organization, we are proud to continue our commitment to clients and the community, providing relevant and meaningful programs and services and working in alignment with our vision, mission and values. I invite you to read the remarkable success stories in this report that illustrate our impact and reach, supporting tens of thousands of people who experience disability throughout the province.
