The Accessibility for Manitobans Act became law on December 5, 2013. The purpose of the legislation is to provide a clear and proactive process for the identification, prevention and removal of barriers that prevent a significant portion of the population from full participation. The AMA will accomplish this by developing accessibility standards with respect to customer service, information and communication, transportation, employment and the built environment. The Minister responsible for Persons with Disabilities identified customer service as the first priority area for standard development.
