Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification

Why does DHI Canada support the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (RHFAC)?

Certification is based on a site’s rated results from an inspection. This inspection looks at the accessibility of a site in these categories, as they are applicable:

A site could be anything from an office suite in a larger building to a planned mixed-use property development.

In addition to the certification process, RHFAC also provides training and designation of RHFAC Professionals. As a site owner seeking certification, you are required to work with an RHFAC Professional to conduct your site visit. You can find a list of Professionals on the Rick Hansen Foundation website.

DHI Canada strongly believes in the importance of this initiative, and we support the RHFAC through donations and by encouraging site owners to have their locations rated. This certification is emerging as an industry standard for gauging how buildings perform for users with mobility, vision or hearing impairments.
