Many Canadians with disabilities and functional limitations face accessibility barriers in their communities and workplaces. This is why the Government of Canada has launched a consultation process that will inform planned accessibility legislation. By offering your input about how we shape the consultation process, you will help us to ensure its success.

All Canadians are encouraged to take part in the consultation process, either by attending an in-person public session in their area or by participating in the online consultation, and to follow @AccessibleGC on Twitter, Accessible Canada on Facebook and to follow the #AccessibleCanada hashtag.

For a complete schedule of locations and dates of in-person sessions, please visit Canada.ca/Accessible-Canada. If you are unable to attend an in-person consultation session, you can still participate by completing the online survey. The consultation process will run until February 2017.
