The City of Brantford will be promoting and educating the public on accessibility during the National AccessAbiltiy Week from May 31st to June 6th, 2020
National AccessAbility Week is a campaign to raise awareness about disability, accessibility, and inclusion. AccessAbility Week celebrates both the right and the opportunity for every individual to participate in all aspects of human life. It is a call to respond purposefully to build a society where barriers to inclusion are removed, and to ensure the independence, self-esteem, dignity, and security of all of our citizens.
“National AccessAbility Week provides an excellent opportunity to recognize the efforts being made by the City, local businesses, and individuals who are removing barriers for those in our community living with a disability,” said Jenny Sawicki, Accessibility Coordinator for the City of Brantford.
The City will run a social media campaign that highlights accessibility topics such as Accessibility, for the ones with Disabilities Act (AODA), accessible parking, the City implemented Blindsquare app, and accessible transit.
