Update on LCO project on law and disabilities
The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) is set to release a consultation paper this fall that will reveal key issues and directions related to the law and disabilities identified through an extensive consultation process. When the paper is released the LCO will request participation from the disability community, government, experts and others for the development of an interim report, to be released in 2011. The consultation paper is part of a larger LCO project that is exploring how the law relates to people with disabilities. The purpose of the project is to create a principle-based tool to help legislators and policy-makers consider the interests, rights and needs of people with disabilities when they are designing laws and policies. For more information, to fill out an online survey about your experiences as a person with a disability or to add contact information to the stakeholder database, please visit the Law Commission of Ontario website at www.lco-cdo.org.
