Improving accessibility is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing to do, and it’s the law in Manitoba.

Nearly one in six Manitobans is disabled by barriers where they work, live and play. Barriers to accessibility come at an enormous cost – to persons with disabilities, to their family and friends, to their communities, and also to business. By learning how to eliminate barriers, everyone benefits.

Manitoba is committed to becoming an inclusive society. The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) outlines a clear and proactive process to identify, remove and prevent barriers in key areas of daily living.

Manitoba public sector organizations are taking the lead by developing Accessibility Plans.
