Accessibility in Nova Scotia

Access includes everyone in everyday life

Imagine a world with no barriers. Everything — from education and employment to the physical environment, to music, sports, entertainment and everyday information — is accessible and available to everyone, no matter their background, circumstances or abilities.

Accessibility is a human right. Creating an accessible province for people with disabilities means more than building ramps and accessible restrooms. It calls for a change in overall attitudes, where everyone is included in all aspects of our society. People with diverse perspectives and experiences make our province stronger.

This is our vision for the future — and change is happening now across Nova Scotia. We’re identifying and removing barriers to inclusion and access in our communities, organizations, schools, workplaces and everyday lives.
