CSA Accessible Self-service Kiosks Consultation

The Canadian Standards Agency (CSA Group) will be conducting a public consultation on ASC/CSA B651.2, the standard on accessible self-service kiosks and automated banking machines. We encourage those of you who are passionate about accessibility to register for these important sessions!


The Consumer Access Group invites you to have your say and send your message directly to the regulators. Join AEBC, CCB, and CNIB for one of three working group discussions on the standard. Each group will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants, so register quickly to reserve your spot! Registration closes on Friday, May 31.


Feedback gathered in these working groups will be consolidated into a joint response from AEBC, CCB, and CNIB to the Canadian Standards Agency.


Working Group discussions will take place on the following days and times:

  • June 12 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern (hosted by CCB)

  • June 13 from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Eastern (hosted by AEBC)

  • June 18 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Eastern (hosted by CNIB)


No matter which organization you are affiliated with, these groups are for everyone, so just pick the date and time that works best for you.


To register for one of the three working groups, contact Shelley Adams at shelley.adams@cnib.ca with the date and time of the session you’d like to join. Please let her know your first, second and third choice in order of preference. Upon registration, you’ll receive a link to the CSA draft standard as well as some topics to consider before the working group discussion.


Together, we can help make self-service kiosks more accessible to Canadians who are blind or have low vision.
