Accessibility Act

By kerr

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) became law on June 13, 2005. Under this landmark legislation, the government of Ontario has developed mandatory accessibility standards that identifies, removes, and prevents barriers for people with disabilities. The AODA applies to all levels of government, nonprofits, and private sector businesses across Ontario who have one or more staff.

An information document is available on the NOCA website which clubs should download to determine what the requirements are for their organization.

By Ellie Lambert

The first two teams to qualify for the 2015 BC Women’s Curling Championship, presented by Best Western, were declared yesterday.

Team Gushulak and Team Scott, who both qualified as Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) points winners, will join defending champions Team Sivertson at the championships in January.

There are still a further five berths up for grabs at the two qualifying events which take place in Kelowna from November 28-30 and in Maple Ridge from December 12-14.

This year, the Provincial Championship, which takes place in Maple Ridge from January 21-25, will be an 8-team triple knockout competition rather than the 10-team round robin format that has been used in previous years.

We will announce further qualifications as they happen, follow us on Twitter to keep up-to-date.
