How we can help
The Accessible Canada Act is a federal law that aims to find, remove and prevent barriers facing people with disabilities. The Act applies to the federal government and to organizations regulated by the federal government.
The Accessibility Commissioner enforces (checks if organizations are following) the Accessible Canada Act and the Accessible Canada Regulations. They will also deal with certain accessibility complaints.
The Accessibility Commissioner is a member of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. The Commission's Accessibility Unit supports their work.
Tools for regulated entities
