StopGap Ramps

Getting around in Downtown Guelph is getting easier. Our community has been working hard towards a barrier-free downtown.  In 2016 StopGap ramps were built and customized for nearly 40 downtown businesses.

Business Tool Kit – Welcoming Disabled Customers

The DGBA, with input from the provincial government and accessibility action groups, produced a business tool kit.  The tool kit aims to educate businesses and offer advice on how best to accommodate those with additional needs, whether they be physical or intellectual.  It also includes a list of resources for both businesses and customers.
