About CANdid Access
What is CANdid Access?
What is it about?
Everyone should have access to the parks, buildings, and public spaces that make up Nova Scotian communities. Persons with disabilities, older adults, children, and many others often experience barriers when trying to access these spaces due to their design, quality of materials, or other environmental factors. There are also exceptional examples of trails, beaches, streets, and libraries in Nova Scotia designed with accessibility in mind. Using Candid Access, we are asking you to share your knowledge of these accessible and inaccessible places to an online map for everyone to see and learn from.
How does it work?
When you visit the Candid Access web map you can scroll down the page to find the online map where residents and visitors to Nova Scotia have uploaded photos of the accessible and inaccessible spaces they encounter. You can add your own photos using the “Add a Photo” button on the website and answering a brief questionnaire about you and your photo. All answers to this questionnaire are made anonymously and are used to help us understand more about why it is a significant feature that hinders or enables access. Please take time to read more about our Terms and Conditions for using Candid Access.
