O. Reg 191/11 Accessible Parking

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016



Accessible parking is an important feature for many people that have difficulty walking, breathing, seeing, or are dealing with other handicaps. In the United States, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 to protect people with disabilities and one portion dealt with setting up rules and guidelines for accessible parking. Such issues included how many spaces are required, where they should be located, signage, and more. In Canada, on a federal level, a comparable act does not exist. Instead, people with disabilities are generally protected by our Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, on a provincial level, Acts contains regulations to provide addition rules and guidelines. In this case, Ontario Regulation 191/11 from the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act spells out similar issues as the ADA, such as specific measurements for identifying accessible parking spaces.
