How your business can become more accessible and safe
Approximately 30% of Canadian adults live with disabilities, making accessibility crucial. In 2019, Canada set the goal to become barrier-free by 2040 with the Accessible Canada Act. Yet, obstacles persist, worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
An interim review found that 77% of people with disabilities reported negative workplace and public space experiences, while only 8% had positive experiences.
