Today is the United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The 2011 theme is “Together for a better world for all: Including persons with disabilities in development.”
It’s estimated that in less than two decades there will be more than 20,000 people with a disability living in Guelph. That’s a lot of spending power. Businesses can visit AccessOn.ca for low/no cost ways of providing accessible customer service.
At City Hall, we are working to ensure that persons with disabilities can participate fully in the life of our community with access to City programs, services, and facilities. This is vital to fostering a sense of belonging, which in turn makes our city stronger, more cohesive, safer, and more caring.
