A Celebration of the Accessibility Acts of Canada and the US
In celebration of the first anniversary of the Accessible Canada Act and the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the RAIC and the U.S. Embassy are coming together to present a one-hour discussion on the similarities, differences, challenges, and opportunities that these two national acts pose for architects, and those they are designing for.
Canadian architect Annie Boivin and American architect Karen L. Braitmayer will present their experiences and insights on designing functional, accessible, barrier-free environments that are inclusive for all users. Host Thea Kurdi will also address the landmark legislation in both countries, the development of accessibilities codes, and the implications for the design and building industries. A moderated Q+A session will explore the similarities and differences that these two national approaches pose to accessible design.
Registration closes on Wednesday, January 20, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.
This session is free for Regular RAIC Members.
The cost for Interns and Retired RAIC Members is $5.00, plus applicable taxes.
