With one in five Canadians having a disability and with the country's aging population, the need for increased accessibility in our communities continues to grow. Be at the forefront of Canada's growing accessibility movement with Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) Training.

RHFAC promotes increased access through the adoption of Universal Design principles.

Upon successful completion and passing the subsequent RHFAC Professional exam, individuals will obtain their RHFAC Professional designation, qualifying them to conduct RHFAC ratings.
