Calgary City Council makes moves to improve accessibility

Sidewalks like these are just one more challenge that Calgarians with disabilities face.

Accessible Housing has been working to mobilize different policy opportunities to advance that cause of accessibility in Calgary. Most recently, we collaborated with Ward 7 Councillor Druh Farrell to put forward a Notice of Motion to City Council, to commit the City of Calgary to reviewing the accessibility of city hall and all other civic facilities (including city-owned recreation facilities, etc.) The motion also committed the City to continue to integrate accessibility and universal design into current and future planning and development initiatives, and to advance the issues of accessibility and accessible housing supply to other orders of government.

This is an important first step in continuing to collaborate with all levels of government to increase accessibility, and we’re excited to work with the City on making Calgary a more accessible place for everyone!
