Making accessibility a part of your public sector organization’s operations ensures that all Manitobans have full access to programs and services designed to meet their needs.

Accessibility plans must be created in consultation with people with disabilities, or representatives from organizations of people with disabilities. Organization members and community stakeholders should be actively engaged in identifying, preventing, and removing barriers that can occur in your policies and practices.

An accessibility plan must be updated every two years and should reflect any new or proposed standards introduced by The Accessibility for Manitobans Act.
