*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 or taking a pause to ensure that we can get back to ramp requests and community-based accessibility and inclusion education, events and activities as soon as we can. We hope that we will be able to restart our in-person programming in September 2020, but please feel free to reach out if you have other ideas on how to support our Foundation, noting that response times may be slower over the Spring & Summer.
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.More About the Community Ramp Project
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.About The School Project
