A FRESH APPROACH TO ACCESSIBILITY
Canada is known for many things: hockey, maple syrup, being polite, wildlife, and, indeed, the great outdoors and adventure. Among these highlights are, of course, our national, provincial and municipal parks. To ensure that all nature-loving individuals can enjoy the breathtaking beauty around us, we need to ensure proper accessibility measures have been implemented across our parks, beaches, public spaces, and recreational complexes. With solutions for getting in and out of buildings, getting around outside, getting to transportation, accessing and using parks, beaches, marinas and waterfront, including in and on the water.
Becoming accessible can seem daunting; people often assume that accessibility requires significant construction, including pouring concrete or building wooden access ramps or expensive paths, especially in winter and/or wet areas that do not last. However, technology has come a long way, making options for becoming accessible more innovative and cost-effective than ever before. As you consider what becoming fully accessible might look like for your facility, we would like to introduce you to WATTS ACCESSIBILITY CONSULTING, a Canadian company focused exclusively on accessibility and inclusion. Owned, managed and run by people who understand and live accessibility and, as such, have unique expertise on the challenges of accessible living. We can help you address concerns about entry to older buildings, provide access to outdoor amenities such as boardwalks, beaches, Parks or trails, and make sure your events, installations, organizations, tourism and facilities such as your marinas, visitor centers, restrooms meet specified International, National and Provincial standards for accessibility.
