The Chamber Breakfast meetings are a great way to fuel up for your busy workday. Network with fellow Chamber members, have a delicious fresh breakfast and enjoy a short presentation from our guest speaker. The Government of Ontario has mandated that by 2025, Ontario will be a barrier free province, but really what does that mean? The expectation is that every business, organization and public place should be barrier free for every person in our community. Why is that important, especially for business people? According to the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario “In the next 20 years, an aging population and people with disabilities will represent 40% of total income in Ontario – that's $536 billion. Making sure all Ontarians have accessible customer service is not only the right thing to do, it makes good business sense”. Come out and hear more benefits of an accessible business and manageable steps to achieving accessibility.
