Webinar Agenda

You Will Learn About:

• The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities & its articles that support the rights of persons with service animals, particularly related to accessibility (Article 9) and liberty of movement (Article 18).

• Protecting the rights of people who use service animals

• The requirements of Manitoba’s accessibility standards and the tools to support compliance

• Experiences, strategies, barriers and solutions to creating and maintaining accessibility for people who use service animals

• Question and answers pertaining to service animals from Manitoba businesses and organizations

Featuring:

• Presentations by The Manitoba Human Rights Commission and the Manitoba Accessibility Office

• A panel discussion among people with visible and invisible disabilities who use service animals, including Yvonne Peters (moderator), Vivi Dabee, and Bill Tucker

We are seeking input from sectors related to retail, hotels, restaurants and housing about situations and questions pertaining to service animals that you would like the panelists to address.

For instance, some of the common questions we have heard include:

1. If a service animal enters a store, hotel or restaurant, how do we know it’s a service animal as opposed to a pet?

2. Do service animals need to be registered?

3. Our apartment building does not allow pets, but one of our tenants says his cat provides emotional support. How do we handle this?

We would appreciate other scenarios or concerns. Please forward your input to MAO@gov.mb.ca.
