For many people with disabilities in Ontario, the search for accessible housing is challenging. Accessibility refers to the way housing is designed, built or modified to enable independent living for people with disabilities. For some people owning their home, this is a matter of renovating or ensuring a new build uses universal design. For others, it means finding an accessible and affordable rental unit – which can involve long wait times and significant compromises on accessibility.
