Description

The Manitoba Policy on Access to Government Publications, Events, and Service (MPAG) instructs the quality of interaction between government bodies and Manitobans with disabilities when providing information, organizing events (including public meetings), and offering services.

The policy is aimed at eliminating barriers faced by Manitobans with disabilities. It addresses the way people with disabilities are treated by government, but does not address program entitlements.

The purpose of MPAG is to ensure that people with disabilities benefit from equal access to:
1. Public information: in print and on-line
2. Public events: meetings, hearings, and community consultations
3. Customer service
