Putting life in the community


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 for your project, call the SACL, (306) 955-3344; fax (306) 373-3070 or email: [email protected].
