Three Halton Hills businesses have been recognized for their efforts in improving accessibility and reducing barriers for people with disabilities. The Ontario Business Improvement Areas Association (OBIAA) and the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA), with the support of the Ministry of Community and Social Services, initiated the Ontario Mainstreet Accessibility Awards for 2006. Young's Pharmacy and The Shepherd's Crook, both located on Main St. in downtown Georgetown, were recognized for outstanding achievement in accommodating the needs of people with disabilities through customer service. Giant Tiger, Tora Acton Ltd., located on Main St. N. in Acton, was honoured for outstanding achievement in accommodating the needs of people with disabilities through the built environment. Young's was also given an additional award for outstanding achievement in modifying and adapting the working environment to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities as employees. The Ontario Mainstreet Accessibility Awards are given to small businesses and communities across Ontario that have made a substantial effort to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities. The Shepherd's Crook was honoured in the 1,500-3,000 sq. ft. category while Young's and Giant Tiger were recognized for their efforts in the 5,000-10,000 sq. ft. category.
