Nova Scotia Accessibility Act

In 2017 Nova Scotia passed the Act Respecting Accessibility in Nova Scotia. The Accessibility Act aims to make Nova Scotia inclusive and barrier-free by 2030 and include six accessibility standards which are currently under development.

  • goods and services
  • information and communication
  • transportation
  • employment
  • education
  • built environment
