Feedback on Accessibility
Health Canada (HC) is developing an Accessibility Plan, as set out by the Accessible Canada Act, which came into force in June 2019. This Plan will aim to eliminate accessibility barriers for Canadians served by the Department. The Plan will be finalized in 2022, is available here on this webpage, and will be updated every three years per the requirements of the Act.
We would like to invite you to share your views on:
- accessibility barriers that exist at HC;
- suggestions on how we can break down barriers for Canadians and make HC a more inclusive workplace;
- accessibility best practices;
- success stories related to accessibility;
"Barrier" means anything (including physical, architectural, technological or attitudinal) that is based on information and communications, or anything that is the result of a policy or practice that hinders the full and equal participation in society of persons with a physical, mental, intellectual, learning, communication or sensory impairment or a functional limitation.
