Inclusion Saskatchewan

COVID-19 has upended our society. Our routines and social networks are disrupted, and the effects of this invisible virus are difficult to understand. At Inclusion Saskatchewan, they are hearing from people with intellectual disabilities and their families about profound anxiety and confusion that this crisis is causing. People are not only struggling to navigate in this new world, but many are also worried about what happens if they themselves or their loved ones have to get health care during a pandemic. The teams at Inclusion Saskatchewan are working with these individuals to create plain-language guides to understand how to stay safe and to navigate successfully in the medical system. Their resources such as, Health Passport will help people to communicate with medical staff and to stay safe and well. To learn more, and to access Inclusion Saskatchewan’s plain language COVID-19 resources, visit
