Legislation, standards and building codes by themselves are not enough to ensure meaningfully accessible spaces. The Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) fills the gap, encouraging building owners to adopt an accessibility lens and take accessibility beyond compliance.
- Strengthen the value proposition of RHFAC, focusing on the following sectors: federally regulated entities, municipalities, post-secondary institutions, commercial building owners and operators, and residential.
- Advocate to governments and other leading organizations to incentivize and/or mandate a higher level of accessibility for new infrastructure and major retrofits.
- Improve the user experience of our online platforms and provide greater support for RHFAC Professionals.
- Develop efficient and scalable operational processes for the RHFAC program.
- Research and evaluate the positive impact of improved access for people with disabilities.
