Free Building Accessibility Audit and Certification

The Rick Hansen Foundation, thanks to funding from the Ontario Government, is offering free building accessibility audits and certifications to nonprofits, businesses, and public sector organizations. The Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification rating scorecard will highlight specific areas where you can improve accessibility and your site may be certified at one of two levels:  ‘RHF Accessibility Certified’ or ‘RHF Accessibility Certified Gold.’  Under the Ontario grant program two hundred and fifty (250) organizations will be selected from ten eligible municipalities:

  • Brampton  
  • Greater Sudbury
  • Hamilton
  • Kitchener  
  • London 
  • Markham
  • Mississauga
  • Ottawa 
  • Toronto  
  • Windsor

Organizations may make multiple applications for more than one site.

Application Deadline: March 27, 2020

Successful applicants will be notified in early July 2020.

Funding provided by the Government of Ontario will cover all requirements of participation, including:  

  • Registration fees to the CSA Group for the RHFAC Registry 
  • RHFAC Professional fees and travel costs 
  • Recognition label and shipping 

NOTE: A rating from the Rick Hansen Foundation does not have legal weight and does not affect or replace legal requirements applicable in Ontario.
