Ontario National Access Awareness Week

Better accessibility is about more than placing a few disabled parking spots near the door to the mall. More than sticking a wheelchair ramp at the side door of your restaurant. More than providing signs in Braille on elevator buttons. True accessibility is about more than making a token effort. It requires us all to take a good, hard look at our homes, workplaces, public areas and infrastructure, and ask ourselves if they are truly open and welcoming to every Ontarian.
