Accessibility Legislation for Saskatchewan

We want to hear from you!

During this first phase, people with disabilities, community organizations, the private sector and the general public will have a variety of opportunities to have their voices heard and help shape the development of the act. We have created a website that houses more information and various opportunities to be involved:

Saskatchewan Accessibility Legislation Engagement Platform

Accessibility Legislation for Saskatchewan

In the 2019 Speech from the Throne, government announced that new legislation will be introduced aimed at removing and preventing accessibility barriers for people with disabilities. The new legislation will look at the design of public spaces, information and communications (which includes customer service standards), service animal certification, public sector procurement, public sector employment and public transportation.

During the development of this legislation, we will be seeking feedback from people across Saskatchewan, including the disability community, stakeholders, the private sector and the general public.

Current status: Phase one of public engagement. Gathering feedback and suggestions on the act.

The first step in creating legislation is developing an act, which is the foundation of the legislation that sets out key definitions, areas under which regulations can be developed, authority for creating accessibility regulations and standards, enforcement measures, review processes and time frames for implementation.

The second phase of public engagement will focus on accessibility regulations and standards. During this phase, we will be asking for detailed feedback on specific rules and standards to improve accessibility under each of the key areas identified in the act.
