Business Online Accessibility Survey

Business Online Accessibility for Nova Scotians with Disabilities survey has been developed by Access Changes Everything Inc. through support of the Province of Nova Scotia in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture Tourism and Heritage.

The survey charts Nova Scotia business online accessibility. The results will tell us what is being done well, and what needs improvement.

The survey is for Nova Scotians with disabilities, and organizations or individuals who support them, to share their experiences with digital and online interactions with businesses located in Nova Scotia.

Lisa Snider at Access Changes Everything Inc. will use the results to write a public report that will be available early 2023. The results will also help form a free digital accessibility resource for local businesses.

They are looking to reach as many Nova Scotians as possible, so please feel free to share.

There is a draw for a limited supply of $10 gift cards. The survey deadline is December 20th, 2022. 

If you need a different survey format or have questions, you can reach out to Lisa Snider at web@accesschangeseverything.com, or call (800) 208-1936.
