Lethbridge County Administration Office to Receive Needed Elevator Repairs through the Goverment of Canada's Enabling Accessibility Fund

Post Date:05/02/2018 2:40 PM
Lethbridge County would like to acknowledge the Government of Canada for its contribution to the elevator repair project in the Lethbridge County administration office. The building has one elevator that is approximately 42 years old. It gives access to the lower level of the building, as well as the upper floor which is utilized by Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC). It is critical to keep the elevator in good running condition to provide accessibility and safety to employees and visitors with mobility issues.

In 2017, Lethbridge Country applied for a grant and the project was funded by the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund to assist in performing needed upgrades and repairs to the elevator. This project will open up employment opportunities for those with physical barriers. It will also improve safety and accessibility for all employees, councillors and visitors to the office who have mobility issues.
