Elections Canada is committed to making sure that our services are inclusive of, and accessible to, all Canadians, including employees of Elections Canada and members of the public with disabilities.
We are also committed to the full and equal participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of the electoral process, which is to be achieved through the removal of barriers by 2040, as required by the Accessible Canada Act (ACA). The ACA identifies seven priority areas where organizations must ensure the full and equal participation of people with disabilities:
The 7 pillars
- Design and Delivery of Programs and Services
- Information and Communication Technologies
- Procurement of Goods and Services
- Built Environment
Elections Canada developed its Accessibility Plan in consultation with its employees with disabilities and the Advisory Group for Disability Issues, which has been Elections Canada's main consultation body on accessibility matters since 2014.
The plan presents the roadmap on the steps that we will be taking toward greater inclusion of people with disabilities.

Elections Canada is committed to serving Canadians of all abilities and meeting their accessibility needs.
That means providing inclusive and accessible products and services and providing accommodations to meet accessibility needs.
To contribute to making Canada barrier-free by 2040 – Elections Canada has put in place an Accessibility Plan.
That Plan– developed with people with disabilities – outlines how we will make our products and services more inclusive and accessible.
Our goal is to ensure electors, candidates, Elections Canada employees and election workers can fully participate in the federal electoral process without facing barriers.
