    P3A is proud to announce that Sherry Hastings, Senior Architectural Technologist, has achieved her Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™.  As the Rick Hansen Foundation explains, “Canadians struggle every day to access spaces because of physical barriers to accessibility – including people with temporary or permanent disabilities, our aging population, and parents with strollers….the Rick Hansen Foundation identified the need for a consistent, professionally administered rating system to address the currently fragmented landscape of building codes and standards. Launched in British Columbia in 2017, this rating system evaluates the accessibility of commercial, retail, multi-unit residential, and public buildings.” 

    Sherry says, “I became an RHFAC™ Professional to be a conduit for helping create buildings and spaces that are more accessible to people. Everyone benefits from an inclusive environment we can all use.”
