Nova Scotia Accessibility Legislation Gets More Scrutiny

“The Act, as written Nov. 2, 2016, is too vague, has very little in the way of measurable goals, only refers to a long-term timetable but no short-term agenda, the committee (accessibility advisory board) only meets four times a year and the penalties are not high enough. There are many instances that the word ‘may’ is used rather than ‘shall’ in order to weaken the bill,” states a submission to the government committee from the Nova Scotia League for Equal Opportunities.
