*CWDO forum on federal consultation

Join us on Tuesday, January 10 at 7:30 PM to share your views on what should be included in federal government legislation to address accessibility.

The forum will be held in Auditorium 1 in our accessible, online conferencing system. Go to our conference rooms and choose Auditorium 1. First time users – choose the download that matches your computer or phone device.

Please register for the forum on national accessible legislation to let us know you’re coming and to let us know of any accommodation needs you may have to participate in this online discussion (for example, captioning).

*Take our survey on national accessibility laws

The accessibility yardstick could be moved considerably with accessibility legislation that applies to federally-regulated organizations at the federal public service.

CWDO will be submitting a response to the federal government’s consultation and we would like to reflect our members’ views in that response.

Please take CWDO’s survey on national accessibility legislation and let us know what’s important to you.

Read Barrier-Free Canada’s principles and their Discussion Paper about what could be included in the legislation.

Together we are stronger.
