The Saskatchewan Abilities Council has a new name, logo and mission statement.
The organization, which has been in existence for 67 years, helps create jobs for people with disabilities and works to reduce the social isolation that individuals with disabilities can experience.
The council will now go by the shortened name of SaskAbilities. With the change comes a new logo featuring charcoal grey and green text.
The grey is meant to symbolize stability and trust, with the green representing growth and well-being.
Corey Hadden, regional director of SaskAbilities, said the colours reflect unique aspects of their contributions to the province.
“This is a significant step forward for Saskatchewan Abilities Council in terms of being leaders within the province and all of the communities that we’ve served,” Hadden said.
SaskAbilities also unveiled a new vision statement: “Working together to build inclusive communities for people of all abilities.”
SaskAbilities serves more than 50,000 people in the province every year.
