The Disability Income Support Coalition asked the province to increase what it pays people who receive Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability funding by $250 per month.
These people currently get $1,300.
Coalition spokesman Dave Nelson says $1,300 isn't a lot when it has to cover rent, food and other necessities.
Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer says the government is in a tight financial squeeze and can't afford it.
But she says the government will continue to work towards improving the quality of life for people with disabilities. (CKRM)Suggest a correction
