Federal Consultation on Transportation Accessibility

In Spring 2018, the federal government is expected to table Canada’s first federal disability legislation, aimed at improving accessibility and inclusion for the 17% of Canadians who are disabled.

In 2017 Michelle was invited to take part in the in-depth consultation on transportation. There were 4 people interviewed specifically relating to air travel for those who use mobility equipment. Interviews also took place for other disabilities, but we don’t have access to them . There were two parts to the constellation – an in-depth questionnaire and a phone interview that took off from where the written submission had finished. In December, 2017, Michelle received a copy of the results of this process. We invite you to read them at this link and we will see if the recommendations make it into the legislation.
