Semaine québécoise des personnes handicapées – Together towards a more inclusive community

The City of Pointe-Claire is proud to mark the 24th Semaine québécoise des personnes handicapées and urges the entire population to be sensitive towards people living with disabilities and the additional challenges they face in these times of pandemic.

As the campaign slogan reminds us, “every gesture counts” when it comes to helping improve the lives of people living with disabilities. This is why the City of Pointe-Claire is continuing its efforts to improve access and make life easier for more citizens so that they can freely enjoy the services and facilities on its territory.

Over the summer, construction of the new Tony-Proudfoot Park will be finalized, giving children with all kinds of challenges a chance to enjoy play structures adapted to their various realities. In addition, in spring of 2021, the new Grande-Anse Chalet, which is currently under construction, will provide full wheelchair access to its rooms, terrace and Lake Saint-Louis.

Relying on the recommendations of its Accessibility Committee, the City remains attentive to the needs of people with disabilities and is establishing a continuous improvement process to make Pointe-Claire as inclusive as possible.
