Things are ramping up in Brussels 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 Brussels 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.
