18 of 34 Osoyoss tourist businesses rate 0 on accessibility
Of 34 businesses recently audited for accessibility, 18 received a ranking of zero.
The survey was part of 2010 Legacies Now's mandate to promote tourism in British Columbia leading up to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.Richard Molyneux, a co-director for 2010 Legacies Now’s disabilities initiative, said the business who scored poorly will be advised them about how they can improve accessibility and where to get the money to make improvements.
“They may never have thought about disabilities before,” Molyneuz said. “We don’t want them to be scared of disabilities, we want them to embrace it because it’s good for business.”
