The Accessibility for Manitobans Act calls on public sector organizations to demonstrate leadership in addressing accessibility barriers in policies and practices by creating an Accessibility Plan. The goal is to ensure Manitobans of all abilities have full access to programs and services designed to meet the public’s needs.

An Accessibility Plan Update (Word) (PDF) is required every two years. There is also an Accessibility Plan Guide and Template for Small Municipalities (Word) (PDF).

The public sector includes organizations that are connected to the government, including Crown corporations, regional health authorities, school divisions, post-secondary institutions, municipalities, and government agencies, boards and commissions. 

Many businesses and non-profit organizations have also chosen to create plans to make sure accessibility is among organizational priorities going forward. 

Accessibility standards under the AMA call for leadership from the public sector in areas like customer service and employment.
