The Richmond Disability Resource Centre's Accessibility Awareness Project started in 2003 as a joint effort of the City of Richmond, Tourism Richmond, and the DRC. The project ultimately has two goals: Increasing the accessibility of Richmond restaurants, hotels, transportation services and other tourist attractions, for people with physical disabilities, and recognizing and promoting the many businesses and attractions in Richmond that already provide outstanding accessibility, through an easy-to-use online database.
