Survey on Accessibility in Federal Sector Organizations
The SAFSO gathers information about barriers related to accessibility for Canadians aged 15 and older whose daily activities are limited due to a disability, long-term condition or health-related problem. Information from the SAFSO may be used by all levels of government, as well as associations for persons with disabilities and researchers working in the field of disability. Data may be used to plan and evaluate policies and programs for Canadians with disabilities to help enable their full participation in society. In particular, information on adults with disabilities is essential for the effective development and operation of the Legislated Employment Equity Program and to measure progress under the Accessible Canada Act. Data on disability are also used to fulfill Canada's international agreement relating to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The survey is sponsored by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). The survey collects information on barriers experienced within the federal sector related to transportation, information and communication technologies (ICT), and communication.
