Meg Dunning, our DGBA promotions & membership coordinator, kicks off the event telling everyone that these colourful ramps you see in the background are not just going to change the landscape of our downtown, they’re going to change people’s lives.
One of the best lines I heard while at the event was when someone in a wheelchair was able to use one of the ramps to get into a store and they said to the owner “this is the first time I’ve ever been in your store!”
And these ramps aren’t just for those with accessibility issues. It’s good for those needing to make deliveries and even for strollers.

I’d like to thank our Downtown Guelph Business Association for embracing this initiative and for all the stores who have signed up for ramps.
