Huron County, Ontario – The Huron County Accessibility Awards Program celebrates organizations and individuals in Huron County who are working to build a more inclusive community and make a difference in the lives of Canadians living with a disability.
The Award of Merit for Barrier-Free Design promotes public awareness of the importance of barrier-free design, and to recognize excellence in accessibility design. Awards are presented annually to owner(s) of a building or facility, whether private business or public sector organization, that has been designed or renovated with special regard to accessibility for persons with a disability.
The 2022 Accessibility Award winners for the private business sector include:
- Sweet N’ Treats, Blyth
- McDonald’s, Wingham
- Deams Holdings Inc / Blyth Library
The 2022 winner for the public sector category goes to:
- Huron County Museum and Library
The selection committee (the Huron County Accessibility Advisory Committee) is comprised of Huron community members and two Council representatives, working to help make Huron County accessible for people of all abilities.
“It’s important to celebrate organizations and individuals who are working to build a more accessible society,” says Warden Glen McNeil. “I’m proud to live in the Huron County community where our businesses prioritize making sure they’re operating inclusive environments.”
