Like what NBC4 covered on their “Unique Book Club Connects People With Disabilities“, the Next Chapter Book Club (NCBC) really is an amazing program.

Participation in the NCBC provides opportunities for all involved to learn, make friends, and become involved in their communities. Learning is an ongoing process and one to which individuals with disabilities should be afforded equal access. NCBC promote literacy learning in both accessible and socially inclusive manner.

Congratulations Jay!

On Wednesday October 22, 2014 about 25 members of staff and Jay‘s parents, Greg and Penny, gathered to recognize Jay’s 5 years of service with Stantec.

Jay received letters of recognition form the President and Vice-president of Stantec, a plaque, and a share in the company. Bob Freisen, who gave Jay the opportunity to work at Stantec, commented that “Jay has been a great addition to our work place.”

Thank you Stantec for supporting inclusion in your workplace.

Jack’s Heat

Have an extra 15 minutes today?  Need a smile on your face this Sunday afternoon?  Want to feel inspired?  Then you have to watch this story about Jack and his teammates.  I think it is extremely important to share stories like these, not only because they are heart warming, but also because the more people that recognize what being inclusive looks like the more people will attempt to create these inclusive environments.  Let’s make these stories ordinary instead of extraordinary so that one day everyone can gain the confidence that Jack gained and feel those moments of joy and belonging.

Sasktel announces $500,000 in support of community living

We are very pleased to share with you that as of February 26th, SaskTel has received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to allocate its entire deferral account of $1.54M to fund initiatives that improve the accessibility of telecommunications to persons with disabilities.  Half of this amount will be allocated to the RDACL.

The RDACL is extremely grateful and excited to work together with members of SaskTel and groups throughout Saskatchewan on this project.  On behalf of the board, a huge thank you is extended to all of those instrumental in making this a possibility for the RDACL.  We look forward to the next three years and are excited to get to work!
