Inclusion Saskatchewan Strategic Plan
Inclusion Saskatchewan's Strategic Plan is our plan for the future. Written by both staff and Board members, this booklet will give you a look at where we are now and where we want to be tomorrow.

This handbook was developed in response to concerns of parents and educators about the lack of options open to young people with intellectual disabilities leaving the educational system. It is a useful guide for students and families as they move through school and into the adult world.
INSK Health Passport
The Inclusion Saskatchewan Health Passport is a plain language health care tool for use within Saskatchewan. Developed with the assistance of Inclusion Saskatchewan's ICAN Self-Advocates, the passport is a 4-page fillable form (with accompanying guide) that outlines the essentials about an individual's medical background, care preferences, and ability to consent to health care treatment. The passport can be given to health professionals in both emergency and non-emergency situations.

Self-Directed Funding (SDF) Guidebook
Self-Directed Funding (SDF) is a funding option from the Government of Saskatchewan. It is not a type of service or a program. Rather, it is an option where funding is provided directly to adults with intellectual disabilities so they can have increased choice and control over the supports and services that best suit their needs.
A person can access SDF for housing supports, day programming, or both. The individual manages their own funding with the support of the representative(s) of their choice. With help from these supporters, individuals receiving SDF will identify their needs and develop a person-centred plan that describes how their needs can be met in the community.
Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP)
The Government of Canada created the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) in 2008 for individuals with disabilities. To learn more about the RDSP you can visit the Government of Canada’s website: www.disabilitysavings.gc.ca.
Inclusion Regina (formerly known as RDACL) has information and resources on the RDSP available for families and individuals. Click here to visit their website.

Supported Decision Making
Supported Decision Making is a useful process to support people as they make decisions. This process recognizes the importance of meaningful, supportive relationships, and empowers people to lead their lives with agency while ensuring respect for their rights as Canadian citizens. Find out more here (PDF).
Alternatives To Guardianship
We receive many inquiries about guardianship as it is still common for family members or support people to be told that guardianship is the only option to support an individual with an intellectual disability once they enter into adulthood. This document provides clarity and options beyond guardianship for those who are providing support to an individual. Find our more here (PDF).
Plain Language Supported Decision Making & COVID-19 Vaccine Guide
