International Day of Persons with Disabilities – Statement from the Safety Codes Council

Today we recognize the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Council joins our partners in upholding the right to barrier-free access to buildings and facilities, recognizing that access is an essential part of ensuring inclusion for persons with disabilities.

There are many resources to learn more about inclusion and access. If you are looking for information on Alberta’s barrier-free requirements and recommendations for best practice design solutions including residential living, our Barrier Free Design Guide is a great place to start.
