Montreal falls behind many cities in terms of universal accessibility. As an example, out of the 68 metro stations, only 8 are currently accessible to people with limited mobility. We’ve decided to put faces on the issues it causes.

Sign the petition

Let’s ask the government to vote a framework legislation on universal accessibility

The current legislation is mainly based on the good will of public organisations. It does not dictate any obligation to show results and doesn’t promote any official timeline. In order to empower Quebec in regards to accessibility, and to eliminate the obstacles that limit the rights and freedom of thousands of Quebecers, we ask the Quebec government to develop a legislation project on accessibility.

Many public businesses remain inaccessible to people with limited mobility because their owner do not realize the impact it can have on the life of citizens. Help us educate them: print the information flyer and offer it to the inaccessible businesses you frequent.

Sign the petition to ask the government to vote a framework legislation on universal accessibility

The current legislation allows many construction projects to start building without taking accessibility into account. This lack of political vision refrains the inclusion of disabled people and slows society down by depriving it from their full contribution. We ask that the Quebec government mandate an independent organization to write up a proposed legislation on universal accessibility.
