Barrier Free

For people with disabilities, it’s not always easy to get around. Could you imagine not using a ramp if you’re in a wheelchair? What if the fire alarm sounds, but you’re hearing impaired? Or how would you find an exit if you had a visual impairment? These are just a few of the many things the Barrier Free Sub-Council considers.   
 
The Barrier Free Sub-Council members meet on a regular basis to discuss issues in the building industry and to make sure that our built environment is safe for all.

 

All Barrier Free Sub-Council meeting minutes are viewable to the public.
