VisitAble Housing Service Provider Survey

Posted by on October 21, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Hey Everyone!

Below is the link and information for a survey that is closing October 30th.  Your input in the survey would provide valuable information for accessible housing.  Please take ten minutes and fill out the survey so that this information can be used to better serve those in need of accessible housing.

We invite you to complete a brief survey about your experience and opinions. Your input is vital to determine the potential impact VisitAble Housing would have on day-to-day living in the region. The data gathered in this survey will be used in reports and communications related to the VisitAble Housing project.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions about the survey or the VisitAble Housing Project, please contact Sydney Atwood at 519-579-1096 X or visit our website at

“VisitAble Housing” is the concept of designing and building homes with three basic accessibility features to provide a welcoming environment and easy physical access for those living in that home and for visitors of all ages and levels of mobility.  VisitAble homes have three basic accessibility features:

1. At least one no-step entrance (at the front, back or side of the house) to the main living level.
2. Main living level has minimum doorway width of 915mm and minimum hallway width of 1100mm.
3. Main living level has an accessible half bath with minimum 1500mm turning radius.

Survey about Ontario’s employment and training services

Posted by on October 13, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Hi All!

We wanted to post about a survey that is being conducted on behalf of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities about Ontario’s employment and training services.

The survey is focused on getting information about the experiences that people have had when they interact with employment and training services offered by any ministry or department or branch of government. This means that the survey is not focused only on experiences with ODSP employment supports – however, the experiences of people on ODSP are very important to get into the mix during this consultation.

If you are an ODSP recipient and you have had experience with ODSP Employment Supports, please consider completing this survey:

This survey closes Friday so make sure to have your voice heard!

Down Syndrome Survey

Posted by on April 16, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

There are only two weeks remaining to complete the Down Syndrome Survey and we have now expanded the survey beyond British Columbia to ask for participation from families and caregivers in Alberta and Ontario.  

 Together with some dedicated medical professionals, who have donated their time to support this effort, we have developed a survey to assess the current health care needs of people with Down syndrome. We hope to have greater participation; currently there have only been 234 families in British Columbia who have completed the survey, including many who have partially completed the survey.

Many people with Down syndrome are slipping through the cracks due to the lack of a coordinated model of health care. Poor health care and limited access to important health screening means poor developmental outcomes and health across the lifespan. We need to raise the bar for health care practices and our hope is that the Down syndrome community will participate by providing the information needed to support our advocacy efforts. Without an expression of interest by the affected community it will be difficult to demonstrate that improvements are needed.

Please see the letter attached for further details or visit our website at  The direct link to the survey is:

The survey takes about 30 minutes, and technical assistance is readily available. Please complete this important survey, ask your friends to participate, spread the word and help us build some momentum for change.
