December 2, 2011 - International Day for Persons with Disabilities Dec 3, 2011
The International Day for Persons with Disabilities is a day not only for advocacy, but also for reaffirming a commitment to expanding accessibility and recognition for persons with disabilities.
Defined by the United Nations as “those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others,” persons with disabilities continue to face significant obstacles within Saskatchewan.
Since 1911, individuals and organizations across the globe have come together to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD).
Working people across Saskatchewan were disappointed today to see how few of their priorities are reflected in the 2014 federal budget. Once again, the Harper government seems to have missed an opportunity to improve the lives of the millions of people that work across Canada.
