All Access: Accessibility Best Practices for Your Organization

CPHR Manitoba and the Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities (MLPD) have partnered to present All Access: Accessibility Best Practices for Your Organization workshop.

An interactive full-day workshop that will demystify the requirements of the new accessibility legislation, and empower participants with the tools and knowledge they need to guide their business or organization on how to implement best practices with practical solutions to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Manitobans Act. 

Participants will hear directly from members of the disability community, while receiving the required training on the Human Rights Code, the Accessibility for Manitobans Act, the Customer Service Standard, and the Employment Standard.  Participants will take away draft policies and emergency plans for implementation in their own organizations.
