Saturday, September 26, 2015 - 3:00pm to 3:50pm

Accessibility legislation designed to allow all Nova Scotians the ability to participate fully in their communities, is being introduced in Nova Scotia in 2016. As institutions that provide information to the public, that employ people, and that own or manage public space; archives, museums and libraries will be required to comply with the regulations, standards, and policies set out and scheduled by the legislation.

In this session, members of the Minister of Community Services’ Advisory Panel on Accessibility Legislation will outline the impacts of the legislation on archives, museums and libraries, and the roll-out process of the legislation’s standards, and their implementation.

There will be time for attendees’ questions and discussion at the end of the session.
