Funds from the Saskatchewan Parks
and Recreation Association are managed by the SACL for particular
community development of inclusive recreation and leisure opportunities.
Community recreation and leisure groups can apply for funding to
develop more innovative ways to include people with disabilities
in community sport and leisure activities. The SACL believes that
people with and without disabilities can play side-by-side to enjoy
true community living. For information about funding applications
