The Canadian Transportation Agency has been undergoing a major regulatory review, called the Regulatory Modernization Initiative, with the goal of improving all of its regulations. The is an opportunity to improve regulations regarding accessibility.

As said in his speech, “Travel on a plane, train, bus, or ferry is not just a convenience – it is an essential part of modern life. That is why we should reach for universal accessibility.”
