City of Regina Seeking Public Input on Accessibility Plan
The City of Regina is creating its first-ever Accessibility Plan to remove barriers to access in City spaces, programs, and services—ensuring that everyone can participate equally and fully in community life.
Everyone—regardless of age, background, or ability—deserves equal access to City spaces, programs, and services. By creating an Accessibility Plan, the City of Regina is strengthening its commitments to becoming an age-friendly and accessible city and ensuring that everyone is able to fully join in community life.
To ensure that the Plan reflects the diverse needs and experiences of all people living, working, and playing in Regina, the City is asking community members to share their input on what an accessible Regina looks like. The Plan aims to centre the voices of people with disabilities, older adults, caregivers, and support and advocacy organizations, while also hearing from a wide range of community members about their experiences with accessibility in Regina.
At the same time, the Plan recognizes that Regina residents have many intersecting abilities and identities, and that accessibility solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Rather, many different actions will be required to meet the needs of diverse community members. Public input will directly inform the Accessibility Plan, including priorities and actions the City can take to remove barriers to access in areas such as municipal transportation, employment, communication, technology, built environment, and more.
There are several ways to give input from now until Monday, June 26, 2023:
