CMHC will advance accessibility and inclusion with a plan
The Accessible Canada Act benefits everyone in Canada. Its goal is to create a barrier-free Canada by 2040. We are committed to meeting the Act’s objectives and requirements.
We are collecting feedback to help us identify, prevent and remove barriers to accessibility and advance disability inclusion at CMHC. This will help develop our accessibility plan.
Our plan will help us meet the accessibility needs of people with disabilities and the requirements of the Accessible Canada Act.
■ CMHC's accessibility plan will be published by December 31, 2022.
