Barriers to Access Survey Information

Over the past couple months, the CKXU Governance Committee has been working to develop an Accessibility Plan for the station that aligns with new Federal legislation under the Accessible Canada Act and the CRTC Accessibility Reporting Regulations. CKXU would also like to take this opportunity to thank the NCRA for providing support and guidance throughout the development of these documents.

This plan (and by extension, the survey) is designed to help CKXU identify and respond to accessibility issues and barriers that may exist throughout the organization. As a part of this work, we are asking the CKXU Membership, Volunteers, Programmers, Staff, Board, and the community-at-large to participate in our Barriers to Access Survey.
