The Government of Canada announced that it will invest over $2.7 million in AccessNow, an online platform that crowdsources information on public transit and venues, such as restaurants and businesses, that are accessible to persons with disabilities. This investment will enable AccessNow to directly address systemic barriers to engaging in the digital economy, and help it expand the reach of its platform in Canada, allowing people to share information—in both of Canada’s official languages—about the accessibility features of public spaces through an interactive map. This will help give Canadians with disabilities a stronger voice.
