Description

Creating accessible and inclusive urban environments promotes social participation and improves the quality of life for the general population, but particularly for people with disabilities. Because of the planned legislation and their proximity to the citizens, municipalities play a key role in the implementation of accessible environments. However, the complexity of municipal organizational structures and the complexity of implementing universal accessibility (UA) principles present major challenges for municipalities. In addition, knowledge mobilization (KM) strategies used to encourage municipal employees to implement UA principles are, to date, poorly documented. This project aims to support  Quebec City in implementing the UA measures provided in the legislation.
