Canadian Access & Inclusion Consultation

Cdn access inlcusionSpinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc. is hosting this consultation for you to offer insights and solutions on the creation of new federal accessibility legislation. The consultation details are as follows:

January 25th, 2017
12:30 – 3:30
306 2nd Street West
Carlyle, Saskatchewan

Please let us know by January 19th if you wish to participate by contacting Lyndley Diacon at (306) 584-0101 ext 3 or lyndleydiacon@scisask.ca.

Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc. has joined with 27 other not-for-profit organizations to form the Canadian Access and Inclusion Project.  Our purpose is to listen to Canadians with disabilities to learn more about barriers and solutions, and together to present recommendations for solutions directly to Minister Qualtrough. You can learn more about the Canadian Access and Inclusion Project and the Government of Canada’s goals at our project website www.include-me.ca .

Imagine a Canada where it is easy to get around. You can hop on a bus; grab a coffee; flag down a cab; get to work on time; meet friends in the evening for dinner, and zip off on the weekend for a last-minute get away. It’s a Canada where you have a job that matches your skills. You can get an education that matches your dreams, and you have an income that supports your independence. You feel included and valued by your community and you can easily communicate with your neighbours.

Chances are, if you are a person with a disability, these scenarios are not that easy.

  • But why not? What are the barriers getting in your way?
  • And what solutions can you offer?
  • We invite you to tell us!

 

 

Show Me the Money! Grant Writing Workshop

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The Southeast Connection Sport, Culture & Recreation District is excited to host grant writing training! This workshop emphasizes first-hand practical experience aimed to build capacity for individuals and organizations applying for grants. With grants becoming more competitive and difficult to attain, we want communities and groups within our District to gain knowledge on the best ways to get this funding. Participants will be engaged in a real-world scenario of evaluating proposals from the juror’s perspective! Participants will have an opportunity to network with other community leaders.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR Don Stein, Executive Director of the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery in Yorkton, brings over 20 years experience in public program development with extensive knowledge in grant writing and community building. He developed this workshop based on his experience as an adjudicator and grant writer. This workshop is a great development opportunity for sport, culture and recreation organizations.
