The Accessibility Advisory Council (Council) wishes to thank the members of the Information and Communications Standard Development Committee, who provided the expertise, research and recommendations that laid the foundation for the Council’s Discussion Paper on Recommendations for an Information and Communications Accessibility Standard (PDF) (Word). 

On May 14, 2019, the Disabilities Issues Office coordinated a three-hour public consultation to receive feedback on this standard.
