StopGap Guelph

StopGap Guelph is a ramp project to help raise awareness to barriers in our built environment and reduces these barriers by providing portable ramps to businesses within the Guelph community.

Nearly 40 Guelph businesses will receive free, portable accessibility ramps in October as part of the StopGap Guelph ramp project.

These ramps aim to improve access to a variety of venues in the downtown core and surrounding area.  Along with the ramps, participating businesses will receive signage that indicates they have a StopGap Guelph ramp and instructions for use.

The ramps are manufactured by Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. through its CETA (Care Enough to Act) program, and the signage is provided by Sign Art Centre of Guelph.
