[Resource] Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Education

resource image

1 in 4 Canadians have a disability, and creating physically accessible spaces where we live, learn, work and play is a critical component for disability inclusion. Many different industries have a role to play, from architects in the design phase to municipalities in policymaking and community building. Whether you are an architect, building owner, occupational therapist or diversity, equity and inclusion professional, an understanding of meaningful physical accessibility will help you create and advocate for accessible spaces. 

The Rick Hansen Foundation has collaborated with people with physical disabilities, experts in the built environment, legislation and building code as well as accessibility professionals and education partners to create training courses and resources on accessibility and disability awareness.
