Nova Scotia. Disabled Persons Commission

The Disabled Persons Commission Act of 1989 established a "central mechanism" to ensure that the concerns of disabled persons about the development of government policies and delivery of government programs and services relating to or affecting them are communicated to and addressed by the appropriate departments. The objects of the commission are to advise and consult with the coordinating committee of Cabinet ministers, established by the act, on meeting the needs and appreciating the abilities of disabled persons; to increase public awareness of the needs and abilities of disabled persons; to increase awareness of government programs benefitting disabled persons; and to instruct the general public on helping to integrate disabled persons into the social and economic life of the community.
