Service Standards

Transport Canada (TC) derives its responsibility for accessibility from the National Transportation Policy articulated in the Canada Transportation Act that states "it is declared that a competitive, economic and efficient national transportation system...(is, inter alia) most likely to be achieved when the transportation system is accessible without undue obstacle to the mobility of persons, including persons with disabilities".

Below are links to the federal Government regulations and codes of practice that provide the guidelines for accessible transportation in Canada.
