Disability Standards for Premises
Canadian Accessibility Code – The purpose of the Disability (Access to Premises-Buildings) Standards is to improve the accessibility of public buildings. These standards are part of the Australian Government’s social inclusion agenda to give all Australians, particularly people with disabilities, better access to a wider range of public buildings. Improved building access enhances opportunities to access employment, education, and services, and to connect with the broader community. The Premises Standards are one action implementing the Australian Government’s ten-year National Disability Strategy. Part of the National Disability Strategy’s vision is of a society with inclusive and accessible communities.
