The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) has built on its various accessibility instruments – six codes and two older regulations – as well as best practices in Canada and around the world to create a single, robust, legally binding Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (ATPDR).

These regulations reflect input received by the CTA from persons with disabilities, industry, members of the CTA's Accessibility Advisory Committee, and the general public during several rounds of consultation between 2016 and 2019.

The ATPDR cover all modes of transport under our jurisdiction – air, and interprovincial and international passenger rail, bus, and ferry – as well as security and border screening. The accessibility requirements in the ATPDR will be enforceable by administrative monetary penalties.

Most provisions of the ATPDR – over 200 – are now in force. More complex provisions are being phased-in over two years until 2022.
