Major Victory for Ontarians with Disabilities – McGuinty Government Enshrines Accessibility Requirements in its New 10-Year Infrastructure Plan

We have all won a major victory for Ontarians with disabilities, after several years of effort by us and our community. We are delighted that mandatory accessibility requirements are expressly enshrined in this new 10 year plan. It requires that: “all entities seeking provincial infrastructure funding for new buildings or major expansions/renovations to demonstrate how the funding will prevent or remove barriers and improve the level of accessibility where feasible.”
