How Accessible Is Your Downtown Business?

Advisory Committee Interested in Breaking Down Barriers to Accessibility

Gravenhurst, ON - The Town of Gravenhurst is committed to promoting and supporting an accessible environment in which residents and visitors have equitable access to programs, services, and facilities in a way that respects the dignity and independence of each individual. To promote this goal, the Gravenhurst Accessibility Advisory Committee (GAAC) has developed a brief survey for downtown Gravenhurst businesses to identify their current accessibility standards.

Information collected from the survey will help GAAC identify opportunities for downtown businesses to remove existing barriers and foster an accessible environment for their patrons, such as sharing educational resources and sources of funding for structural/customer service enhancements.

To learn more about GAAC and participate in a short survey, downtown businesses are encouraged to visit www.gravenhurst.ca/accessibility
