Story

In 2007, with funding from the Province of British Columbia, 2010 Legacies Now established the Measuring Up Accessibility and Inclusion Fund. The fund supported BC communities to improve community life for people with disabilities, seniors and others with accessibility needs.

From 2007-2009, the fund distributed a total $1.86 million to 88 communities to help deliver the Measuring Up program. Communities used their grants to evaluate local accessibility and complete a variety of projects such as installing washrooms in community centres, creating employment opportunities for persons with disabilities, and improving accessibility of outdoor trails.
