Accessibility Standards Canada

logo for Accessible Standards Canada

Accessibility Standards Canada creates and reviews accessibility standards for federally regulated organizations. It also supports and promotes innovative research that aims to identify and eliminate barriers, and to prevent new ones.

As standards are being developed, Accessibility Standards Canada will put our calls to form technical committees. These committees identify where persons with disabilities may face barriers related to the area of focus. Then they develop a national standard, or a suite of standards, to work towards eliminating these barriers. Watch the website to know when Accessibility Standards Canada is searching for committee members.
