Nominations are open for the City of Williams Lake Accessibility Award of Merit.
The intent of the award is to raise public awareness about physical and attitudinal barriers in an effort to improve the quality of life for all disabled persons by giving them the opportunity to participate in all aspects of community life.
In order to qualify for the award, the Williams Lake Accessibility Advisory Committee will consider nominees that have demonstrated a commitment to increase accessibility above and beyond what is required by law or regulation.
Businesses or groups being nominated must be located within the boundaries of the City of Williams Lake and provide a service for the people of William Lake.
Businesses or groups may be nominated by any citizen or group who should provide strong evidence in support of their nominee’s commitments and contribution to improving accessibility.
Any citizen or group wishing to re-submit or re-nominate an individual, group or business who was, or was not, selected for an award in a previous year may do so by completing a new nomination form and providing up-to-date information in support of that nomination.
Nomination forms can be found online at www.williamslake.ca or from the City.
