Accessibility

We’re committed to providing a welcoming, safe, barrier-free and accessible environment for all of our community members. 

As an organization, we’re responsible to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The purpose of this Act is to improve opportunities for people with disabilities by identifying, preventing and removing barriers that may otherwise limit their abilities to fully participate in society.
