What is the Accessibility Exchange?

Connects the Disability Community to Organizations

Connects disability communities and supporters to organizations that are “regulated” or supervised and monitored by the federal government, to work on accessibility projects, as required by the Accessible Canada Act.

Provides Guidance and Resources

Provides valuable resources and guides for organizations and people with disabilities and Deaf people on how to engage in accessible and inclusive ways.

How does this work?

For Governments, Businesses, and other Non-Profits

This is for Federally Regulated Organizations under the Accessible Canada Act.

For Community Organizations

This includes disability and Deaf representative organizations, support organizations, and other civil societies (not only disability focused).

What do we mean when we say “disability”?

Disability is not in the person. It results when a person’s long-term physical, mental health, developmental, or sensory characteristics differ from society’s norms. When buildings, services, and workplaces are designed for the norm, they often present barriers to a person’s full and equal participation in society. That’s what we mean by disability.
