The Government of Canada led an engagement with Canadians in 2016-2018 to develop the Accessible Canada Act. In parallel, the AFN engaged with FNPWD and First Nations governments, among others on AFN mandated work in building distinct First Nations accessibility legislation.
The AFN has undertaken a number of activities to engage FNPWD and First Nations governments to inform Distinct First Nations accessibility legislation, including several surveys, workshops on cross-cutting issues, and key informant interviews. The three national webinar/links on the AFN website continue to attract thousands of viewers.
On-going engagement with First Nations includes discussions on the following themes: employment, procurement, service delivery, transport, the built environment, information, communications and/or other themes identified by First Nations.
