    The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) enacted in December 2013, calls on the Manitoba government and all other public sector organizations to create and update an accessibility plan every two years that describes the measures the organization will take to identify, prevent and remove barriers that disable people.

    The Manitoba Government Accessibility Plan (MGAP) is being updated for 2021 and 2022. We thank everyone that provided input on how to continue to advance accessibility. An opportunity to provide feedback was open until September 15, 2020.

    In October 2019, the Manitoba government announced its commitment to develop a new income support program for persons with severe and prolonged disabilities. This program would be separate and apart from the Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) Program.

    The report summarizes much of the feedback received during the public engagement process. It will be used to develop program options and inform the next steps in the development of a new income support program.

    The COVID-19 pandemic in Manitoba and around the world has led to fundamental changes to nearly all aspects of life, including the delivery of critical services to vulnerable individuals in our communities.

    As the province continues the process of gradually restoring its social and economic activity we need to consider the planning required for day services to slowly reopen, based on the guidance and directives from public health. An opportunity for Service Providers to provide feedback on the gradual re-opening of day services was open from June 18 - June 26, 2020.
