The Manitoba government has released its proposed Accessible Information and Communications Standard, one of three AMA accessibility standards under development. The standard will outline requirements for organizations to create, provide, and receive information and communications in ways that are accessible for people with disabilities.
The government is currently welcoming feedback on its proposed standard, and RCC intends to develop a submission and meet with the government in coming weeks prior to the October 5, 2021 deadline. Comments from interested stakeholders are received through the Manitoba Regulatory Consultation Portal.
The Manitoba government enacted the Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) in 2013 to identify, prevent, and remove barriers that affect Manitobans in their daily lives. Accessibility standards affecting customer service and employment have already been enacted.
