Government Offices Most Responsible for Disability Issues across Canada

Printer-friendly version

The Canadian Disability Policy Alliance provides this gem. Government disability services and supports have been described as fragmented and difficult to navigate, especially for those new to the process. In an effort to make it easier to find what you’re looking for, they have assembled some basic information about government disability services across the country. In each province or territory, there is a designated office most responsible for coordinating and governing services and supports to people with disabilities. In this brief report, CDPA attempt to summarize:

  1. Contact information for those offices in provincial and territorial governments supporting disability services and policies;
  2. Location of these offices within the provincial or territorial bureaucracy; and
  3. Extent to which the provincial/territorial government has pursued or is in the process of pursuing accessibility legislation.
