Saskatchewan’s Legislative Building Receives Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification

Released on May 10, 2021

Saskatchewan has become a national leader for accessibility in its Legislative Building.

The province's Legislature has received the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification, becoming the first Legislative Building in Canada to receive the designation.

"The Legislative Building belongs to all of the people of Saskatchewan and this certification demonstrates our commitment to making it accessible to everyone," SaskBuilds and Procurement Minister Jim Reiter said.  "Saskatchewan has proven itself to be a leader by becoming the first province in Canada to have its Legislative Building receive this certification."

The Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification program measures more than just building code and is based upon the experience of people with varying disabilities.  The building survey considers a variety of factors, including vehicle access, interior and exterior access and environment, signage and more.  Buildings must score above 60 per cent and meet mandatory requirements to receive the certification.

The Legislative Building was constructed from 1908 to 1912 and is one of Saskatchewan's most notable historic properties. 

The Government of Saskatchewan remains committed to ensuring that facilities used to deliver programs and services are accessible to the people who require them.
