One in seven Canadian adults currently identify as having a disability affecting their mobility, vision, or hearing. This number is projected to increase to as high as one in five by 2036. This means rethinking how we access and use our public buildings and spaces.

Whether you’re an architect, general contractor, engineer, urban planner, design-builder, or anyone interested in accessibility in the built environment, qualifying for an RHFAC Professional designation will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills needed to rate a building for its overall accessibility under the RHFAC program.

With a combination of theory and hands-on practice, the course helps people planning, designing, and constructing the built environment understand accessibility form the perspective of people with disabilities, and measure the accessibility of their venues.
