Benefits to Community

Our community as a whole stands to benefit from universal design. By incorporating universal design into the creation (or renovation) of public spaces, we build a more inclusive community, remove barriers and stigmas, serving everyone.

Public buildings and shared community facilities at all levels – municipal, governmental, post-secondary – must welcome and serve community members of all ages and all abilities to enable them to fully engage in community life.

For a strong community, universal design is key. To gain a better understanding of universal design and how society can benefit from its widespread use, explore this site for helpful resources and guidelines.
