Welcome to our new website.

Since our selection as an EnAbling Change Partner by the Ministry of Community and Social Services, People Access has been creating, compiling and collecting information pertaining to Accessibility for People with Disabilities and showcasing it on our new website.

We’re delighted you stopped by to read our first blog post – thanks for your attention. Please comment below if you wish to contribute. To keep abreast of the latest accessibility ideas and issues please bookmark this page or subscribe to our RSS feed.

We’d like to take a few moments to tell you about our team, our services, and our extensive Resource Section. Our people and our resources are here to help – please download all the information you need. If you can’t find the answer to your question, please do contact us.

The Ontario Legislature is the first governing body in the world to pass laws designed to make the world more accessible to people with disabilities by requiring organizations to proactively comply with enforceable accessibility standards. These standards will improve customer service, employment opportunities, transportation, communications, and built environment. We salute all those who played a hand in producing and enacting this brave and just legislation. While making your products and services more accessible to people with disabilities makes good business sense, our Government’s efforts have now made it the law. People Access, on behalf of people with disabilities everywhere, thanks them!

You, your organization, the Ontario Government, and People Access, are all setting off to achieve a fairer and more encouraging world for people with disabilities. Let’s face it: It’s a difficult enough world to succeed in and people with disabilities deserve to participate in, contribute to, and enjoy it as much as anyone. Lets all do what we can to level the playing field. We wish you the best of success with your endeavours to make your products and services more accessible to everyone. And remember, we’re here to help. Contact us for your free consultation to learn your next steps.

Russ Gahan, Vice President, Operations
