The Canadian Healthcare Facilities Journal published an article by Direct Access’ Steve Dering and Dr Jennifer Camulli on the various access legislations in Canada that impacts on healthcare providers. With an estimated 20 percent of Canadians with a disability, addressing barriers such as poor signage, narrow doorways, internal steps, inadequate restrooms and a lack of parking spaces, is crucial to delivering accessible healthcare.
The article covers the new Accessible Canada Act and provincial legislation in Ontario, Manitoba and Nova Scotia. It also details the process of an Access Audit, one of Direct Access’ core services available for healthcare providers in Canada.
