What Does An Accessible Canada Mean To You?

4:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Italian Cultural Centre: 132 Algoma Street South
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 accessibility legislation to promote equality of opportunity and increase the inclusion and participation of Canadians who have disabilities or functional limitations.
The Government of Canada is seeking your ideas for this new legislation, including:
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 more generally raise accessibility awareness and support organizations in improving accessibility.
Canadians are encouraged to participate in the local public session or the online consultation by completing the questionnaire in the language of their choice and preferred format such as digital, handwritten, video or audio submissions. Canadians can provide their input online or by telephone, mail, email, fax and TTY. www.canada.ca/accessible-canada
