PEAC 200: Legislation, Policy, & Human Rights is the second of three core competency training modules in the Professional Education for Accessibility Competence (PEAC) program.

PEAC is an accessibility training program designed for decision-makers, leaders, directors, managers, individuals, and teams. This training program is intended to help you:
- Upskill your accessibility knowledge and confidence in the workplace.
- Build capacity to better understand accessibility and disability perspectives and practices.
- Develop practical skills and access tools to enhance inclusivity within your role, team, and organization.

PEAC 200 delves into the legislative frameworks, policies, and regulations that work to shape accessibility practices across the country. You will gain a broad knowledge of Canadian accessibility laws and human rights codes, their implications, and how to implement them effectively and ensure your workplace is compliant.

This module will be delivered virtually.

This module is taught by Melissa Luhtanen, Senior Legal Counsel to the Tribunal and to the Chief Commissioner of the Alberta Human Rights Commission and will feature Guest Speaker Michael Gottheil, Accessibility Commissioner.
