City of Winnipeg Accessibility Plan

The 2016-2018 Accessibility Plan is the culmination of the effort and dedication of City Council and Public Service leaders, all Departments within the City of Winnipeg, and consultation with our community stakeholders. The Plan aligns with the requirements of the Accessibility for Manitobans Act and represents the City’s commitment to ensuring inclusive access and participation for all people who live, work or visit our city, regardless of their abilities.

Date added: June 1, 2016

How is the data being compiled?

The City will perform a cross-departmental scan to identify current policies, practices, procedures and projects that show the commitment to identifying, preventing and removing barriers for citizens and visitors to Winnipeg who may be affected by barriers.

Additionally, the public will have an opportunity to provide feedback through completing a survey. For those who prefer to participate in a face to face discussion, we will also hold a fall workshop (time and place yet to be determined). Please ensure your voice is heard.

How will this information be used?
