Federal Government Consulting on Accessibility Legislation

The federal government is currently conducting consultations on planned federal accessibility legislation. The consultations, which are open until February of 2017, are centred on the following issues:

  • feedback on the overall goal and approach;
  • whom it should cover;
  • what accessibility issues and barriers it should address;
  • how it could be monitored and enforced;
  • when or how often it should be reviewed;
  • how and when to report to Canadians on its implementation; and
  • how to raise accessibility awareness more generally and support organizations in improving accessibility.
