The Accessible Canada Act is a federal law that was created to find, eliminate and prevent barriers that people with disabilities face daily. Adopted in 2019, the Act’s primary goal is to create a Canada that is free of barriers by 2040. To accomplish this, the Act requires that federally regulated private employers with 100+ employees prepare and publish an initial Accessibility Plan by June 1st, 2023. The date assigned to employers with 10 – 99 employees is June 1st, 2024.
