This event is part of our monthly member exclusive roundtable series.

A big part of diversity and inclusion involves improving accessibility for people with disabilities – more than 16% of the population. The Accessible Canada Act was passed in 2019 and includes provisions to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.

Find out how you can examine and audit this critical issue.
