Accessibility Standards Canada is recruiting technical committee members to create standards on employment and emergency egress

Accessibility Standards Canada is now recruiting volunteer* experts for two new technical committees. These committees will create employment and emergency egress accessibility standards.

 Experts with disabilities are key to the successful development of accessibility standards.  Each technical committee will consist of 12 to 18 members. All experts are required to represent one of the following categories:

► Industry and commerce

► Government authorities

► Consumer and public interest

► Labour and unions

► University and research groups

► Non-governmental organizations

► Standards development organizations


Deadline to apply: December 21, 2020, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Visit Accessibility Standards Canada’s website for more details, including ways to apply.

*Accessibility Standards Canada is following Canadian and international best practices to develop our standards. These are volunteer roles, but if an expert with a disability is not paid by an organization, Accessibility Standards Canada will pay them for their role on a technical committee.
