Brampton Library strives to make its spaces accessible, and with the recent Rick Hansen Foundation certification of our Springdale Branch Library, we have the opportunity to do more.

Brampton Library’s mission is to create opportunities for everyone. The accessibility of our facilities is an important ingredient in that effort. We are pleased that the Rick Hansen Foundation has recognized Springdale Branch Library in its certification. We pledge to learn from their feedback and grow our ability to serve all residents.

The Rick Hansen Foundation was established in 1998 by accessibility activist Rick Hansen following his Man in Motion wheelchair marathon which spanned 40,000 km and thirty-four countries. The foundation funds research and care for people affected by spinal cord injuries. They also campaign for inclusivity, both by creating awareness about accessibility and by providing solutions to physical barriers for people with disabilities.

We share the Rick Hansen Foundation’s vision for an accessible world, and are committed to working along with our City of Brampton partners. Late last week, it was announced that ten public facilities have received certification. For further information, click here to see the city’s press release.
