残疾人和老年人是社区潜在的就业群体和客户群,他们理应是社区活动参与的其中一份子。但安省的许多建筑对残疾人和老年人出入存在挑战,降低了他们的出行热情。企业未能充分发挥其潜力,社区也没有完全展现他们的功能。

安省保守党政府以民为本,将通过与Rick Hansen基金会的全新合作关系,投资130万加元,无障碍认证计划将在安省启动,确保每个公共建筑对残疾人士的畅通无阻。

Taking Action to Remove Barriers for People with Disabilities

TORONTO — People with disabilities and seniors deserve to remain engaged in their communities and represent a huge potential employee and customer base. Many buildings in Ontario continue to be a challenge for people with disabilities and seniors. When buildings are not accessible, people are shut out from fully participating in everyday life, businesses fail to reach their full potential, and communities are not as welcoming as they should be.

Ontario is focusing on what matters most to people with disabilities and seniors by helping to remove barriers in buildings and making communities more accessible.

The Government of Ontario is investing $1.3 million over two years through a new partnership with the Rick Hansen Foundation. Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, and Rick Hansen, Founder of the Rick Hansen Foundation, were at the MaRS Discovery District today to announce that the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification program will be launched in Ontario.

The certification program will provide accessibility ratings of businesses and public buildings by trained professionals, and will help property managers and owners determine ways to remove identified barriers.

Through this investment, the Rick Hansen Foundation will undertake ratings of 250 facilities. The program is expected to start this fall and roll out over the next two years in select communities across Ontario.

"Removing barriers in buildings will help make communities and businesses more accessible and open for jobs," said Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility.

"We are working to ensure people with disabilities have the support and resources they need to participate more fully in their communities, as consumers and employees. Being accessible benefits businesses and communities and opens them up to qualified talent and more customers."

"I am very pleased and honoured to be collaborating with the Ontario government. The $1.3 million will go a long way in providing meaningful access to buildings and communities, and will help make Ontario more inclusive where people with disabilities are living to their full potential," said Rick Hansen, Founder of the Rick Hansen Foundation.
