We have been improving accessibility for our residents for many years.
Council adopted policy to ensure that new multi-family residential development provides more basic design features to facilitate building access and usability for people of all ages and abilities.
About the Accessible Design Policy
The policy also provides enhanced features on some units to facilitate ageing in place, and to support people with mobility and/or sensory impairment.
This policy applies to all new single level multi-family residential development and to a portion of new townhouse development. Additional features are required when the units are intended specifically for seniors.
