We are committed to addressing the barriers and constraints to participation in recreation faced by many people in Saskatchewan.
We embrace and celebrate the diversity of Saskatchewan. Our understanding of diversity is inclusive of any and all differences between and among people. Acknowledging and valuing diversity in all its forms is vital to the prevention of prejudice and discrimination.
