Things are ramping up in Seaforth Ontario…….

StopGap

StopGap is creating a world where every person can access every space through fun and engaging community projects that raise awareness and remove barriers.

“Participate in the Seaforth Community Ramp Project”

The Community Ramp Project Goal:

  • This program has been introduced to create awareness about barriers in our built environment that prevent people from enjoying some of the amazing buildings and businesses our community has to offer.
  • This program will help private businesses embrace the upcoming “Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Built Environment Standard”, which in the near future will make it law for businesses to be barrier free.

 The Community Ramp Project Facts:

  • Whether you are a parent pushing a stroller or a wheelchair user, ramps simply make life easier.
  • A ramped storefront is smart for business, as it allows access for everyone regardless of their ability.

 The Community Ramp Project Tasks:

We will help gather volunteers and material donations so that you and other inspired business owners can receive a lightweight nonpermanent ramp to suit your single stepped storefront – for free!

If you know anyone who may be interested in contributing time or materials to help construct these ramps and make our community more accessible, please have them contact the organizers.

Tim Prior knows farming, first hand.  When he purchased Brussels Agri Services over 20 years ago, he was in touch with the needs of the area and knew what had to happen to grow the business.  In addition to providing and installing all types of high quality fencing, Brussels Agri Services can supply everything else needed for a farm, ranch or acreage together with top notch customer service after the sale.  This winning combination has worked.

Recognizing another niche market, Tim and his wife Donna opened The Cowboy Loft at the Agri Services site a decade ago, and haven’t looked back. With a large inventory of western tack and clothing, The Cowboy Loft has a broad customer base both locally and from a distance.  From outback fleece to Wranglers and Roper boots, they have what you need for work, play, show, and for just horsing around.
