Your input sought

Here's news from Craig MacKinnon at the Accessibility Directorate.  Please share widely:

Dear colleagues,

Nova Scotia’s new Accessibility Act has a goal of an accessible Nova Scotia by 2030. In Fall 2018, the Minister of Justice will release a strategy and implementation plan for how we will achieve that goal.

The Accessibility Directorate is committed to ensuring that Nova Scotians are consulted in the development of this strategy. As one part of this consultation, we have developed an online survey that seeks input from persons with disabilities, and those who work closely with persons with disabilities.

The purpose of the survey is to receive feedback regarding:
  • Issues and barriers faced by Nova Scotians with disabilities
  • Priorities for the development of provincial accessibility standards (rules and regulations)
The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QSVFV97 (or via the Directorate’s website at https://novascotia.ca/accessibility/) until it closes on Monday April 9th.

We are asking for your help to publicize this survey to persons with disabilities and those who work with persons with disabilities by sharing it with your members and contacts. We welcome you to share the information via email, your website, social media, or other communications channels.

Any questions about this survey, or requests to receive the questions or submit responses in an alternate format, can be directed to the Nova Scotia Accessibility Directorate (contact info below).

Thank you so much for helping us to spread the word!
