The Annotated Accessible Canada Act from the University of Windsor Law is now on CanLII!
The CanLII team is happy to announce the addition of The Annotated Accessible Canada Act to our commentary collection!
Created by The Law Disability & Social Change Project, a project directed by Professor Laverne Jacobs at the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law, The Annotated Accessible Canada Act reproduces the text of the Accessible Canada Act, S.C. 2019, c. 10 with the addition of helpful commentary that contextualizes and explains the language of the legislation. It is designed to be readable for a wide audience including legal professionals, academics, and anyone in the general public interested or invested in the issue of accessibility.
The publication of the The Annotated Accessible Canada Act on CanLII also coincides with National AccessAbility Week which celebrates the valuable contributions of Canadians with disabilities and encourages individuals, communities and workplaces to remove barriers to accessibility and inclusion, and raises awareness of the systemic discrimination experienced by persons with disabilities.
Many thanks to the book’s authors (Laverne Jacobs, Martin Anderson, Rachel Rohr & Tom Perry) and to the Law Disability & Social Change Project for allowing us to publish this valuable resource on CanLII!
