The Alliance for an Inclusive and Accessible Canada (the Alliance) is a group of disability organizations consulting Canadians about the Government of Canada’s proposed federal accessibility law.
The Alliance is currently conducting an accessibility survey to know about the barriers Canadians face and the accessibility priorities.
People with disabilities, their families and caregivers, groups like service providers, unions, industry representatives and associations are welcome to complete the accessibility survey.
Your answers to this survey will remain anonymous. The results of the survey will be included in a report.
What areas could this new law address?
The Government of Canada has committed to adopting a strong federal accessibility law to will help remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities.
The new accessibility law will cover areas that are under the power of the federal government.
This includes railways, airlines, banks, postal services, radio, television, telephone and internet providers, employment insurance (EI), immigration, Aboriginal lands and rights, the military and criminal law.
This new law will not address areas that are under the power of the provinces, including health care, municipal transportation, guardianship and property rights.
