The Saskatchewan Abilities Council is a registered charity and operates under the authority of The Non-Profit Corporations Act, 1995, of Saskatchewan. It is dedicated to providing programs and services to people with disabilities in Saskatchewan.

In 1950, families of children with cerebral palsy believed there could be better education, treatment, and services for their children and others like them; they did something about it and started the Saskatchewan Council for Crippled Children. Within a year, the Council found itself providing services to both children and adults disabled by the effects of polio. To reflect this expansion of services, the name was changed to Saskatchewan Council for Crippled Children and Adults.

In 1984, a desire to emphasize abilities rather than disabilities led to a second name change for the agency. It became the Saskatchewan Abilities Council Inc.

Today, the Saskatchewan Abilities Council is proud to celebrate 60 years of success in delivering recreational, rehabilitation, and vocational programs to more than 35,000 people with disabilities throughout the province.

There are branches located in Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, and Yorkton. There are also five Partners in Employment offices located in Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, and Yorkton. A Special Needs Equipment depot is located in Prince Albert; Manitou Lake is home to Camp Easter Seal; and Provincial Services resides in Saskatoon.
