The Government of Saskatchewan has introduced The Accessible Saskatchewan Act that, when passed, will establish accessibility standards and regulations for the buildings and spaces, information and communications, employment, transportation, service animals, procurement, and service delivery.
The government will have one year to develop an accessibility plan from force date, and will be the first to be obligated, followed by the broader public sector. It’s not yet determined what requirements will exist for the private sector, and the government has told RCC that clarity regarding this is a couple of years away, with the focus initially being on public sector compliance.
