THIRD READING SPEECH ON BILL C-81
ACCESSIBLE CANADA BILL
Hon. Yonah Martin (Deputy Leader of the Opposition):
Honourable senators, I rise today also to speak very briefly at third reading of Bill C-81, An Act to ensure a barrier-free Canada. Bill C-81 enacts the accessible Canada act in order to enhance the full and equal participation of all persons, especially persons living with disability, in our society. This bill will require federally regulated entities across the country to ensure accessibility to workplaces,
public spaces, employment, programs, services and information.
