Spinal Cord Injury BC, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping people with spinal cord injuries, is working to create online profiles ranking recreation sites on their ease of accessibility. This project, supported by the Trust and additional government funding, aims to create a central information resource that residents, business and visitors can use to learn about accessible outdoor amenities available in the region.
This project, called Access North, aims to highlight improvements to accessibility in northern communities. More than 150 provincial and regional parks, trail systems and roadside heritage attractions in the North will be profiled and rated on their ease of accessibility.
One such project worth celebrating was completed by the Tabor Mountain Recreation Society (TMRS). This project was recently supported with $30,000 through the Community Halls and Recreation Facilities program.
One of the many trail networks completed by the TMRS is the mobility nature trail. This trail was developed for seniors, wheelchairs, families and the general public as an opportunity for everyone to enjoy nature. The trail has now been expanded with new benches and tables.
