AccessAbility Day

handicap

Thursday, May 31st is the 15th Annual AccessAbility Day at Ottawa City Hall and residents are invited to join!

 

AcessAbility Day is a FREE event open to the community and City of Ottawa staff that showcases accessibility in the services we provide.

 

This year’s theme is accessible healthcare – or HealthAbility, in partnership with Ottawa Public Health.

 

As a member of the City’s Accessibility Advisory Committee and Chair of Ottawa Public Health, I highly encourage all residents to stop by and learn more about some of the pursuits that the City of Ottawa is taking to ensure a happier, more accessible community for all!

 

To promote the inclusion of all participants, the following disability-related supports are in place for the event:

  • American Sign Language and continuous real-time captioning will be provided for the morning presentations
  • FM Loop system is available
  • Personal Attendants will be on site for the entire event
  • Scent sensitive venue

Interested residents are asked to please register by May 24th to attend. Para Transpo customers may pre-book transportation to AccessAbility Day beginning at noon on Tuesday May 29.
