Toronto Pearson is Accessibility Certified

 

Toronto Pearson has received the RHF Accessibility Certified Gold rating, the highest accessibility rating awarded by the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (RHFAC) program. This achievement marks a significant milestone in Toronto Pearson’s ongoing commitment to becoming the most accessible airport in the world.

“This certification is the result of substantial investments and multiple improvements made at Toronto Pearson so that travelling is a barrier-free experience for everyone,” said Kurush Minocher, executive director customer experience and airline relations at Toronto Pearson. “While we celebrate this achievement from the Rick Hansen Foundation, our journey does not stop here. We are committed to setting new global accessibility standards and will continue to make additional improvements so that flying at Toronto Pearson is a seamless experience for all travellers.”

RHFAC is a national rating system that provides building owners with a comprehensive tool to measure accessibility, offers a roadmap for improvements, and recognizes dedication to accessibility. It measures the level of meaningful access based on the user experience of people with mobility, vision, and hearing disabilities, as well as individuals with neurodivergent needs

Congratulations to Toronto Pearson for this fantastic achievement and for your leadership and commitment to accessibility. Over one billion people worldwide identify as having a disability and everyone regardless of their age or ability should have the opportunity to travel with comfort, dignity, and independence,” said Rick Hansen, founder of the Rick Hansen Foundation. “An accessible airport is a key step towards ensuring a more holistic and positive travel experience for all.”
