Nova Scotia Accessibility Survey

Nova Scotia’s new Accessibility Act has a goal of an accessible Nova Scotia by 2030. In Fall 2018, the Minister of Justice will release a strategy and implementation plan for how we will achieve that goal.  

The Accessibility Directorate is committed to ensuring that Nova Scotians are consulted in the development of this strategy. As one part of this consultation, the NS Accessibility Directorate has developed an online survey that seeks input from persons with disabilities, and those who provide services to persons with disabilities.  

The purpose of the survey is to receive feedback regarding:

  • Issues and barriers faced by Nova Scotians with disabilities
  • Priorities for the development of provincial accessibility standards (rules and regulations) 

The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QSVFV97 (or via the Directorate’s website at https://novascotia.ca/accessibility/) until it closes on Monday April 9th. 

The Nova Scotia Accessibility Directorate is asking for your help to publicize this survey to persons with disabilities and those who provide services to persons with disabilities by sharing it with your contacts. We welcome you to share the information via email, your website, social media, or other communications channels.  

Any questions about this survey, or requests to receive the questions or submit responses in an alternate format, can be directed to the Nova Scotia Accessibility Directorate (contact info below). 

Thank you so much for helping to spread the word!
