Accessibility Self-Assessment Guide

The AHLA has partnered with the Voice of Albertans with Disabilities (VAD) to create a self-assessment guide, developed for hotels to ensure their properties are accessible.

Developed through the Creating Accessible Hotels in Alberta Project, the guide is a way to support the accommodation industry in response to those with disabilities who travel within Alberta.

The VAD has also completed the Creating Accessible Hotels in Alberta project which includes sections on Current Practice, Accessibility Tools and Recommendations for Action. The report provides an overview of the accessibility strategies used internationally and within Canada.

Along with the results of this study, the report also provides tools to assist with assessing and improving accessibility in hotels including:

  • Templates on Best Practices for Accessible Hotel Rooms and Bathrooms
  • A Guest Checklist to Assess Accessible Hotel Accommodations
  • A Hotel Accessibility Self-Assessment Guide for hotels to examine key accessibility elements.

Finally, the report makes recommendations for action that will improve accessibility in hotels. The full report can be viewed here and the summary report can be viewed here.
