Nova Scotia’s Government to help make Nova Scotia a more accessible and inclusive place to live and work.

The Minister’s Advisory Panel on Accessibility Legislation brings together a diverse group of people with experience and expertise that will report to the Minister of Community Services Joanne Bernard on February 13, 2015 with recommendations about accessibility legislation for Nova Scotians that ensures all Nova Scotians will have equal opportunity to reach their potential.

The Minister’s Advisory Panel will examine issues related to access to information, communications. labour market and employment opportunities, removing structural barriers in the built environment, attitudes and public awareness, transportation, client services, and housing.

A report to the Minister of Community Services will be delivered in February, 2015, which will include recommendations based on what was heard during public consultations.

The province will use the report to develop accessibility legislation that will be introduced in Spring, 2016.
