Review of the accessibility act, with an accessible bus in the background

We Need Your Input!

A message from the Province!

As many of you are aware, there is an independent review of the Nova Scotia Accessibility Act taking place. Dr. Katie Aubrecht and her team will be completing the data collection in July.

This is the first independent review of the progress being made under the Act. The recommendations from Dr. Aubrecht will shape accessibility work moving forward.

The review welcomes input from people who are Deaf, neurodivergent and/or persons with disabilities, family/friend caregivers, service provider and advocacy organizations, and bodies, groups and organizations affected by the implementation of the accessibility standards.
