Celebrating 50 Years

SARC is celebrating 50 years in 2018!  We have many exciting events and activities in store throughout the year to highlight our membership, the history of the disability services sector, as well as the incredible work that professionals in the sector do to support people experiencing disability to live, work, and thrive in their communities according to their unique goals and desires.


Here’s how you can join us in celebrating 50 years:

Share photos and news from your organization:

  1. Photos from 1968 until now that reflect an important milestone at your organization. Photos can also demonstrate an important time for the disability services sector in Saskatchewan generally.

  2. What’s new at your organization? Do you have any innovative programs that involve creative community partnerships, demonstrate person-centredness or meeting client’s needs in a unique way? You can keep up to date with all Anniversary related stories and news on SARC’s blog.
