Accessibility Coordinators

Obligation:

Ministries and government agencies must name a coordinator of services for people with disabilities and send their contact info to the OPHQ.

Results:

The two independent reports on the law noted a high turnover rate among coordinators. These individuals didn’t have any decision-making authority in their organizations and didn’t have in-depth knowledge of disability issues.

Recommendations:

Ministries and government agencies should have to post the contact information of their coordinators on their websites.

This obligation should also apply to municipalities and the private sector.
