The Accessibility Program gives tenants living with disabilities a chance to work with staff and others to make accessible improvements to their units and common areas so they can participate in community life.
The program supports:
- Toronto Seniors Housing’s Human Rights, Harassment and Fair Access Policy
- The Ontario Human Rights Code
- The City of Toronto Accessibility Plan
The success of the Accessibility Program relies on the cooperation of staff, tenants, family members and agencies to make cost-effective modifications for tenants. Sometimes a tenant may have to relocate to a different unit or building because it is the best way to meet the request.
When making accessible improvements to common areas in buildings with elevators, tenants and staff should focus on front entrances, recreation spaces, parking and laundry rooms.
Staff need your completed form(s) before they can move ahead with your request.
