Accessibility standards under public review
CAN-ASC-1.1 Standard on employment - Submit your feedback by October 31, 2023
CAN-ASC-5.1 Standard on emergency measures - Submit your feedback by December 13, 2023
When the first draft of a standard is completed, we make it available for public review. The public review process gives every Canadian a chance to comment on our standards before they are finalized. This allows all Canadians to ensure that our accessibility standards include their lived experience and meet their needs. Once the draft standard is online, Canadians have 60 days to provide feedback.
