Canadians, communities and workplaces benefit when everyone can participate equally in everyday life. There has been much progress in making our society more inclusive, but we can do better.
This is why the Government of Canada is committed to developing new planned accessibility legislation to promote equality of opportunity and increase the inclusion and participation of Canadians who have disabilities or functional limitations.
Many Canadians continue to face barriers that affect their ability to participate in daily activities that most people take for granted. In developing this new legislation, the Government of Canada is consulting Canadians both in person and online.
The online consultation will be open until the end of February 2017. An in-person consultation will be taking place in Toronto on Wed., Feb. 8, 2017 from 4:30-7:00 pm.
