Zero Project Conference: Accessibility Standards Canada with Philip Rizcallah

Join Steven Scott and Marc Aflalo for an interview with Philip Rizcallah, the CEO of Accessibility Standards Canada, on Access Tech Live at the Zero Project Conference in Vienna.

Accessibility Standards Canada develops standards to remove barriers to accessibility and has been around for four and a half years.

They have developed five standards so far and are about to embark on five new committees. The organization ensures that their committees are made up of a significant percentage of people with disabilities, as they believe in equity-based standards. The work they do impacts the disabled Canadian community by creating documents that will turn into regulations or legislation, ensuring that buildings, communication, and forms are accessible to all.
