Accessibility Plan Background

The City of Regina is developing an Accessibility Plan to identify, remove, and prevent barriers to access in City spaces, programs, and services. We are asking for community input to ensure that the Plan reflects the diverse needs of people living, working, and playing in Regina.

The City invites residents to share their experiences with accessibility in Regina, including barriers, challenges, and potential solutions. Public input will directly inform the Accessibility Plan, including priorities and actions the City can take to remove barriers to access in areas such as municipal transportation, employment, communication, technology, built environment, and more.

The goals of the Plan include:

  1. Identifying, removing, and preventing barriers to participation in civic life.
  2. Strengthening the City’s ongoing commitment to becoming an age-friendly and accessible city.
  3. Creating a centralized, strategic plan to coordinate accessibility efforts across all City departments.

The City of Regina’s Accessibility Plan will envision a city where everyone—regardless of age, background, or ability—is able to fully join in community life. A meaningful Accessibility Plan will centre the voices of people in the disability community, including people with disabilities, their care partners, and family members. The City also seeks to hear from support and advocacy organizations that serve people with disabilities and older adults.

The Plan recognizes that Regina residents have many intersecting abilities and identities, and that many different actions will be required to meet the accessibility needs of diverse community members. This includes the needs of Indigenous people with disabilities, who, in addition to facing barriers to accessibility, continue to face the effects of colonialism. The City will work with Regina Treaty/Status Indian Services (RT/SIS) to engage Indigenous people in this process and ensure that the Plan supports reconciliation in Regina.
