Barrier-free Constituency Offices

In 2013, the House of Assembly Management Commission revised and added regulations 18, 19 and 19A, which state all MLA constituency offices must be barrier-free.

  • New members elected in October 2013 had until October 18, 2014 to comply with the barrier-free regulations.
  • Re-elected members in October 2013 had until October 2016 to comply with the barrier-free regulations.
  • New members elected in May 2017 had until May 2018 to comply with the barrier-free regulations.
  • New members elected August 2021 have until August 2022 to comply with the barrier-free regulations.

To be considered barrier-free, a constituency office must include accessible parking, washrooms, meeting space, doors, entrance and a barrier-free approach.

Members are required to submit a compliance plan indicating if their office is barrier-free. If the office is not barrier-free, an explanation and plan to address any deficiencies must be provided.

This chart indicates if a member’s office is barrier free. If the MLA has submitted a Compliance Plan you can click on the report and the scanned plan is shown.
