Accessibility helps create great communities

Provided By:

(NC)-Accessibility. It's a term you will soon be hearing more often. It's going to have a big impact on you and your community. Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, Ontario is moving towards its goal of an accessible province by 2025.

Accessibility means making our communities more welcoming places where people with disabilities can participate fully. That means access to shopping, recreation, work, or just getting around.

Accessibility makes sense for our communities because it benefits everyone, not just people with disabilities. We all use our community centres, libraries and playgrounds. If you are a person with a stroller, you welcome entry ramps, wide washrooms and playgrounds that make it easy to wheel a stroller around.

Good lighting and clear, large-type signs help people with low vision - and also those of us whose eyesight is getting weaker with age.

And what about elevators in our shopping centres or train stations? If you have ever had to haul heavy hockey gear or shopping carts, you probably appreciate elevators more than any of us.

During National Access Awareness Week (May 26 - June 1) do your part - visit www.accesson.ca to learn more about how to make your community a place everyone can enjoy.
