CALL FOR INTEREST

Period of Commitment: September 2020-March 2021

Location: Remote

 

The Rick Hansen Foundation has the great pleasure in inviting you to be part of the Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee.

  

Statement of Purpose 

Thanks to funding of $1.3 million from the Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility, the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) is accepting applications from organizations across ten municipalities in Ontario to obtain a snapshot of their building’s accessibility through the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) program. See the program website page here

 

The Application

Eligible applications will be reviewed from the 10 selected cities (Brampton, Kitchener, Ottawa, Mississauga, Hamilton, Toronto, Markham, London, Sudbury and Windsor). The applications will be reviewed and ranked per each municipality by the Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee.

 

The Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee will rank applications based on a series of questions, such as:  

  1. Is the proposed application site a high traffic location for people with disabilities?
  2. Does the proposed application site have a lot of accessibility features?
  3. Would the proposed application site benefit from a RHFAC rating? Would any identified improvements help a large number of people with disabilities

 

Objective

The objective of the Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee is to review and rank applications based on appropriateness to be selected for a complimentary RHFAC rating.

 

Commitment

The Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee is online based, with all commitments occurring remotely. It is expected that Committee members will spend about thirty minutes of review time per application. The total time is dependent on the number of applications received (approximately 30 applications per reviewer).

Training Session: Ontario Complimentary Ratings External Review Committee Training Session
