Accessibility Criteria

Based on the barrier-free design standards of the Quebec Construction Code, Kéroul’s accessibility criteria provide a portrait of accessibility from a visitor’s point of view, for each type of equipment. These criteria are the result of Kéroul’s experiences and consultations over the years with associations of persons with disabilities and are the only ones recognized by the ministère du Tourisme du Québec for the certification and assignment of accessibility ratings.

 

Pictogramme AccessibleThe accessible rating means that the establishment meets all of the visitor’s accessibility criteria and offers a satisfactory visitor experience for the majority of people with a mobility impairment.

 

Pictogramme Partiellement accessibleThe partially accessible rating means the establishment meets the main accessibility criteria related to a visitor’s route but has some missing elements that could affect the experience of some people with a mobility impairment.

 

For example:

  • Circulation route with doorstep, steep slope or restricted clear width.
  • Entrance or door with doorstep, steep slope or restricted clear width.
  • Washroom with minimum accessibility, but functional with help.
  • Partial access to the main activity or with minimum accessibility.

 

Pictogramme déficience auditiveThis rating indicates that the establishment offers services tailored to the needs of people with a hearing impairment. The services evaluated vary according to the nature of the activities offered by the company.

 

Pictogramme déficience visuelleThis rating indicates that the establishment offers services tailored to the needs of people with a visual impairment. The services evaluated vary according to the nature of the activities offered by the company.
