dc.description.abstract There is a great deal of research pertaining to the standards and regulations required to create “accessible” spaces. However, by only following minimum recommendations and guidelines, facilities are falling short of meeting and exceeding all people’s accessibility needs. Introduced in 1988, The City of Calgary mandates measures that follow established Access Design Standards (ADS), which exceed Alberta Building Code requirements. While these standards are required in all new City of Calgary buildings and renovation projects, they are not required to integrate the standards into existing infrastructure. Research indicates that the built environment directly reflects society's understanding of accessibility. However, there is a lack of research specifically looking at how an individual’s perception of a built environment is impacted by their accessibility needs. en_US
