Equity and Accessibility Resources
The United Church of Canada and the East Central Ontario Regional Council (ECORC) is committed to becoming an open, accessible, and barrier-free church, where there is full participation of people with disabilities. Consider how your community of faith can become a more accessible one for people with a range of disabilities. The United Church of Canada’s Accessibility Audit for Communities of Faith might help move in the right direction.
