E-Democracy

Information and communications technologies are becoming increasingly common in the provision of government services and information, and in electronic consultations and voting. Our research is studying:

  • how the accessibility requirements of people with disabilities were (or were not) incorporated in two recent on-line federal government e-consultations
  • how the Canadian disability community has used e-consultations for policy development

From this research, we will describe:

  • ways future government e-consultations can be more inclusive of people with disabilities
  • how emerging information and communications technologies can be used to develop the capacity of the disability community in Canada

We encourage you to use the links on the left side navigation bar for more information about Dis-IT E-Democracy projects, researchers, partner organizations, products, and resources.
