Mapping Our Cities For All
How Accessible Are Our Cities?
One billion people live with a disability around the world today, yet nobody really knows how accessible, or rather inaccessible, our cities actually are. It’s time for some answers so we’re on a mission to map cities across Canada.
Every review added to our platform is one more instance of advocacy, one more experience that highlights the accessibility of a place. With each new review, we get that much closer to answering the question:
How accessible are the places where we live, work, and play?
What is a MapMission
A MapMission is an event that puts the power of action in your hands. Think of it like an accessibility scavenger hunt. MapMissions bring people together to rate places in real-time on the AccessNow app
The Game Plan
Summer 2021 our teams reviewed accessibility of
all commercial and public spaces in Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary in our biggest MapMission to date across Canada.
2021-2022 AccessNow will analyze information from our mappers to derive observations about how accessible each city is based on a variety of features.
In 2022 we will share our findings and results on the state of accessibility with Canada and the world.
