Making digital technologies more accessible to Canadians with disabilities
“Despite new assistive and adaptive technologies that empower persons with disabilities to participate in the workforce, we still see a technology gap in our communities. That’s why I’m pleased to launch the Accessible Technology Program. It will help us address this technology gap and give all Canadians an equal opportunity to obtain the well-paying middle class jobs of today and tomorrow. Innovation is only successful when we can all participate.”
– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
Assistive and adaptive technologies include screen readers, alternative keyboards, refreshable braille displays and various software and applications.
Private sector firms, not-for-profit organizations and research institutes can apply.
