The government's plans include persons with a disability. For employment equity purposes, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has defined persons with a disability who:

  1. have a persistent physical, intellectual, mental, psychiatric, sensory or learning condition that:
    • requires a technical device and/or personal support or service to do the essential functions of the job; or
    • requires a modification of job site, job responsibility, adjustment of work hours, extra rest breaks or time off/leave to obtain treatment as necessary.
  2. consider themselves to be, and have reason to believe an employer or a potential employer would consider them to be disadvantaged in finding, retaining or advancing in employment because of that condition.

The corresponding SHRC community representation statistic is 9.7 per cent of the working age population. As of March 2012, 3.0 per cent of the Saskatchewan public service workforce self-declared as being a person with a disability.
