I attended the Accessibility Legislation in-person Community meeting on November 2, 2019 in Vancouver. The goal was to give feedback and get realistic perspectives from others. It was a spirited conversation.
It’s been 5 years since I helped Ruby and I’ve always wondered how she’s doing now. If you can help one person, be a role model, have positive influence, etc. that is what life should be about.
The Accessible Canada Act (Bill C-81) will receive Royal Assent today (June 21, 2019). Once received, it will be law, in effect, and assure a barrier-free Canada by the year 2040.
Bill C-81 has now been adopted by the House of Commons. It’s now time to work towards a barrier-free Canada.
Almost 7 years to the date of the last legal decision around the Federal Government’s consitutional duty to ensure web-related content are accessible to all, Bill C-81 has now passed the 3rd reading in the Senate and has one last step before it receives Royal Assent and becomes law.
