Self-Advocacy Action Group

The Self-Advocacy Action Group (SAAG) is a provincial group of adults with intellectual disabilities. These self-advocates tell their stories and speak about the rights of individuals with disabilities; what it is like to live with a disability, and most importantly about their abilities. SAAG has a variety of presentations that can be tailored to suit any audience. To date they have presented to high school students, post-secondary students and professionals in education, health and social work programs; as well as to peers and family organizations.

Topic discussions include:

  • Their right to be a citizen in their community;
  • Their right to have friends and to be in a relationship;
  • Their right to a good education and lifelong learning;
  • Their right to work and have enough money;
  • And their right to be treated respectfully and participate in the decisions that affect them.
