Statistics Canada Road to Accessibility

Statistic Canada has released its first multi-year accessibility action plan, "Statistics Canada: Road to Accessibility," which outlines StatCan's commitment to the principles of the Accessible Canada Act (ACA). The ACA aims to make Canada barrier-free by January 1, 2040. It calls on all federal departments and agencies to focus on the experience of persons with disabilities by:

  • making the built environment more accessible

  • making information and communications technologies accessible and usable for everyone

  • giving employees the tools to make products, programs, procurement, and services accessible

  • customizing the employee work experience to meet individual needs
