The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) is the Government of Canada’s focal point to advance the full participation of people with disabilities in Canadian society. It also supports the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities on the mandate to develop and introduce new federal accessibility legislation. The goal of the federal legislation will be to eliminate systemic barriers in areas of federal jurisdiction and promote equal opportunities for all Canadians living with disabilities. In order to assess the outcomes and impact of the new accessibility legislation and complementary programming, a measurement framework will also be designed and implemented. SRDC has been engaged by ODI to conduct an environmental scan and analysis to help inform the development of this framework.
