WHAT IS DISC? 

The Saskatchewan Disability Income Support Coalition (DISC) was formed by a large cross section of disability advocates, consumers and organizations across Saskatchewan who are committed to advocating for a respectful, dignified and adequate income support system. DISC members have joined together to speak as one voice, working towards a distinct (or separate) income system for people with disabilities that will be built on our common vision and principles.

Our Vision

Our primary vision is to see an income system that offers both an adequate baseline income for people with disabilities and a user-friendly mechanism to address individual financial needs based on the impact of disability.

As we look towards our vision of developing a distinct income system, one thing is clear – no one can create a better system alone. DISC members believe strongly that the only way to move forward is as one voice and in a collaborative, full partnership with the Government of Saskatchewan and the Department of Community Resources. We believe that a program designed without the collaboration of community experts will lack credibility and be unsatisfactory in meeting the income support needs of people with disabilities.

As such, we see developing a distinct income program for people with disabilities as a truly joint venture between all stakeholders, each contributing equally to the process. DISC comes with one voice and we propose that the Government of Saskatchewan let us bring our rich experience and contribute our expertise to the development of a new income policy for people with disabilities.
