Signal Boost: Invitation to Respond to Government’s New Accessibility Standards from Citizens with Disabilities of Ontario (Canada)

Invitation to Respond to Government’s New Accessibility Standards
from Citizens with Disabilities of Ontario (CWDO)

The provincial government has now posted its proposed new accessibility standards. The new standards will cover accessible employment, transportation, and information and communications.

You are invited to help CWDO prepare a response to these standards by the government’s deadline of October 16, 2010. CWDO will be hosting a series of three on-line meetings to contribute to our response.

Where? IDEAL Auditorium 1 (our on-line conference centre)
Time? 1:30 to 3:30 pm, EDT
When?
Sunday, Sep 19 – Information & Communication proposed standard
Sunday, Sep 26 – Accessible Transportation proposed standard
Sunday, Oct 03 – Accessible Employment proposed standard

At all three sessions, members will be invited to comment on the common components of the standards. These sections address training, policy development, compliance and enforcement.

Time is short, so please read the proposed standards ahead of time.

More information can be found on our Accessibility Standards Committee page.
