The City of Kingston has partnered with the Municipal Accessibility Advisory Committee (MAAC) in raising awareness during National AccessAbility Week (May 28 to June 2 ) with a new “I can…in Kingston because…” campaign that features members of the community enjoying improved access and providing input on how to eliminate barriers.
“The City and MAAC members wanted to show how efforts to improve accessibility make a real difference in how people are able to use and enjoy the city,” said Julie Salter-Keane, community projects manager, in a release. “Creating a more inclusive community is what accessibility is all about.” Salter-Keane says the City has also updated its Multi-Year Accessibility Plan 2018-2022.
The plan includes strategies to help make the City more accessible to all residents and visitors by ensuring the accessibility standards under the AODA are fully implemented by 2025. See it at CityofKingston.ca/Accessibility.
Anyone who has identified a barrier to accessibility -including in City buildings, indoor and outdoor hazards, communication and transportation – is encouraged to report it by calling 613-546-0000 or emailing ContactUs@CityofKingston.ca.
