Standards under public review

When the first draft of a standard is completed, we make it available for public review. The public review process gives you a chance to provide your feedback on our standards before they are finalized. This ensures that our technical committees consider as many perspectives as possible. It also helps to ensure our standards meet the needs of as many people as possible. Once the draft standard is online, you will normally have at least 90 days to provide feedback.

This page lists all of our accessibility standards under public review. We will add draft standards that have already undergone public review, when completed. This is your chance to contribute to our collective goal of a barrier-free Canada!
