Accessibility in Action is a two-year initiative managed by IRIS with a diverse project leadership team and implementation partners and advisors – including disability organizations with local-to-national reach, individuals representing marginalized communities (i.e. Indigenous, racialized, migrant, 2SLGBTQ+) as well as technical and legal experts.
Accessibility in Action sets out to create an online platform that will bring disability communities together with the thousands of organizations or entities who are regulated under the Accessible Canada Act of 2019. The initiative aims to help deliver on the legislation’s immense potential to mobilize effective engagement of people with disabilities and federally-regulated entities in creating an accessible and inclusive Canada that fully respects and protects the human rights of people with disabilities.
