The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA)
Provincial legislation was introduced to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility. 在美国医学协会, each organization is required to develop and publish a plan to identify, prevent and remove barriers to accessibility.
A barrier to accessibility is anything that limits or prevents a person from being able to receive information, 服务和产品, and access space or activities. Barriers may prevent access to housing, 运输, community participation, employment or education.
Attitudes can be the biggest barrier.
The plan will cover accessibility standards as they are released including: Customer Service (2017), Accessible Information and Communications, 建筑环境, Employment Accessibility and Accessible 运输. The standards outline specific measures to be taken by public and private organizations. Changes will result in improved accessibility for all Manitobans regardless of (dis) 能力.
As per the AMA legislation, 奔驰宝马游戏 is required to produce its first plan by December 31, 2016 and to update every second year.

温尼伯 学校部门 is committed to providing inclusive education in all of our schools and programming. Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that allows all individuals, 无论性别, 能力, ethnicity or socio-economic status, 感觉接受, 有价值的和安全的.
Inclusion means accessibility – not to a place, but to a process and a plan that requires an understanding of what a student needs to succeed academically, socially and emotionally. 在奔驰宝马游戏, 父母/监护人, the school support team, division staff and community agencies, 根据需要, are involved in this planning process.
I fully support the 奔驰宝马游戏访问计划 and the efforts to ensure all students may attend and are welcomed by their community schools in a classroom setting where they are supported to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life.
Message from Accessibility Coordinator Fatima Mota
I am very pleased to present 温尼伯 学校部门’s first 可访问性计划. 奔驰宝马游戏 is a leader in providing inclusive education to students in Manitoba and we view Accessibility Legislation as a natural next step in advancing our province in a positive and inclusive way.
I would like to recognize the members of the 奔驰宝马游戏 Accessibility for Manitobans Steering Committee for dedicating their time and effort to accessing 奔驰宝马游戏’s accessibility achievements as well as our challenges. This work could not have been completed without the input of our many school communities who responded to our accessibility survey through school administrators and parent councils. Thank you for your responses and vision for the future of 奔驰宝马游戏 inclusiveness.
While the work to compile this initial report has been a large-scale task, it is just the beginning. I look forward to the many successes 奔驰宝马游戏 will celebrate as we continue to implement Accessibility for Manitobans Act standards in our services, buildings and attitudes.
