The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) became law December 5, 2013. Under this legislation, the Manitoba government developed five mandatory Accessibility Standards:
- customer service standard;
- information and communication;
- employment; and
- built environment.
Removing barriers to accessibility will give Manitobans of all abilities the opportunity to:
- participate fully in everyday life; and
- access and benefit from a system, service, product or environment.
For 2016, and every second year after that, the Act will require Manitoba government and broader public sector organizations to prepare accessibility plans that address the identification, prevision and removal of barriers, starting with Accessible Customer Service.
