Accessibility and Inclusion in Parks

Accessibility and Inclusion in Parks

Nature has no building code, but everyone belongs outdoors.

This webinar explored approaches to accessibility and inclusion in parks and protected areas, from modifying the facilities to adapting the experience. From the east coast, explore Parks Canada’s work creating barrier-free park facilities and experiences, and from the west coast learn about the inclusive programs delivered by Power to Be. Discover how inclusion takes innovation, commitment, and teamwork.
