Get Involved

*Please note that like much of the world, our operations have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are taking the recommended precautions and our small team is currently working remotely. We will be re-launching our ramp building operations in the late Spring of 2022, School programming will re-launch in 2023, and we will be hosting Corporate Teambuilding programming on a case by case basis depending on the evolving COVID-19 situation. In the meantime, we’d LOVE to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out by sending an email to info@stopgap.ca!

It takes a village to raise a child. Similarly, it takes a collective understanding of the issues concerning inaccessible spaces before permanent solutions arise. We need to start somewhere and raising awareness about the issue is the first step ;). Join our growing team of supporters and get involved in one of our programs!

The Community Ramp Project

Physical barriers in our “built environment” prevent many of us from enjoying some of the amazing buildings and spaces that our cities and communities have to offer. With material donations from community hardware stores and volunteer labour from inspired community members, businesses with single stepped storefronts are invited to participate and have a custom ramp made at little to no cost. The brightly coloured ramps do not present a perfect solution to the problem however they do get people talking about the much bigger issue of inclusivity and accessibility for all.

The School Project

In the Spring of 2016, Luke created a one-off program for kindergartners at Toronto’s Mabin School. Through conversation with Luke, and neighbourhood exploration, the children learned about the inaccessibility of their communities through the eyes of people who use wheelchairs.
