Accessibility Technical Standards
Contributing to development of accessibility standards is an important focus for Incluzia. With over 20 years of accessibility consultation, collaborating with older adults, people who are Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent, we know accessibility design standards need to improve to reduce barriers. We are committed to our contributions to remove barriers in our homes, workplaces and public spaces to increase accessibility, safety and social participation, allowing equitable access to environments, goods and services.
Canadian Standards Association Group and Accessibility Standards Canada have collaborated on the development of this important standard sharing their expertise and resources to improve accessibility standards across Canada.
Marnie Courage, founder of Incluzia, sits on this Technical Committee, leading one of the committee working groups.
This standard will guide accessible design and construction of new housing and adaptations to existing dwellings. It was published in February 2023.
