 District A-16 Accessibility Awareness Committee

The Lions A16 Accessiblity Awareness Committee Logo

“Our mission is to promote Lionism by ensuring that it is accessible to everyone by removing barriers for those who face visible and non-visible challenges and by creating a culture of inclusion and acceptance.”

 

One of the main purposes of the Accessibility Awareness Committee is to make sure that District A-16 is fully accessible by the standards of the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act which is a statue enacted in 2005 by the government of Ontario.  The purpose is to improve accessibility for Ontarians with a physical and medical disability to all public establishments by 2025. You can access The Ontario Accessibility Disabilities Act from this link: http://www.canlii.org/en/on/laws/stat/so-2005-c-11/latest/.

 

If a club would like assistance in making recommendations to the management of your clubhouse, i.e. physical barriers such as ramps, lighting, accessible bathrooms etc. The Accessibility Committee would be happy to work with you on this issue.

 

This committee is helping make sure District A-16 is doing our part in our Lions Clubs.

 

We have compiled some tips that you can access on the links for the following topics:

 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Yours in Lionism,
