The Government of Canada has committed to developing new planned accessibility legislation to promote equality of opportunity and increase the inclusion and participation of Canadians who have disabilities. The process to develop this new legislation includes in-person consultations - being held across Canada until February 2017, with all Canadians invited to participate.
Discussion questions at the public consultations include
Help Canada become more inclusive by attending an in-person consultation in your province or territory, and share your opinions and experiences with barriers you face as a person with a disability, family member, or ally.
Upcoming in-person consultations:
Thursday, October 20th - Moncton, New Brunswick
Thursday, November 3rd - St. John's, Newfoundland
Monday, November 7th - Victoria, British Columbia
Thursday, November 10th - Quebec City, Quebec
Wednesday, November 16th - Montreal, Quebec
"In Canada we’ve made considerable progress in making our society more inclusive. We see this throughout our communities. But there is still work to do. Canadians with disabilities continue to face barriers in their daily lives. Persistent gaps remain in areas such as employment, income and social inclusion," says the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities.
