ACCESSIBLE HOUSING NETWORK
A collaboration of non-profit Canadian organizations, advocating in support of people of all ages to live as they wish, in housing that is fully accessible.
Our mission is to ensure that, whatever their age or ability, every person in Canada can live in housing
that is fully accessible. To this end, we call on every level of government to make universal design mandatory in every unit in all new multi-unit
We invite individuals and other groups to support our campaign by contacting their elected representatives
at all levels -- municipal, provincial, and federal.
