The Accessible Canada Act and the CRTC Accessibility Reporting Regulations

We are responsible for implementing accessibility rules under the Accessible Canada Act (ACA) for the broadcasting and telecommunications industries, which includes a requirement for service providers to establish a feedback process and submit accessibility plans and progress reports.

Read the reminder of the non-CRTC obligations

In addition to the regulations set out in the CRTC Accessibility Reporting Regulations, regulated broadcasting and telecommunications providers are reminded of their complementary obligations, including notification obligations, under the Accessible Canada Regulations. The Accessible Canada Regulations are administered by the Accessibility Commissioner to the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
