When Luke Anderson bought his downtown Toronto condo in 2008, he couldn’t get in the front door.
 
Anderson, 39, has used a wheelchair since a 2002 biking accident left him fully paralyzed in his legs and partially in his arms.
 
“I was all of a sudden introduced to a world that’s not well-suited for someone with a mobility issue,” says Anderson, who founded the StopGap Foundation for accessibility advocacy.
 
Without an automatic door opener at street level or at his unit’s entrance, Anderson’s mobility was tested. Once inside, he couldn’t wheel through the door frame to the bathroom where there was a bathtub he couldn’t easily use. Still, he bought the unit and spent about $15,000 retrofitting his new home. At that time there were few options for someone with mobility needs.

Today, Anderson has partnered with Daniels Corporation as a consultant in the developer’s new Accessibility Designed Program (ADP), launching this month at The Wesley in Mississauga City Centre, DuEast development in Regent Park, and all future Daniels projects. Rather than retrofit units, the program offers condo units with accessibility in mind from the design stage, at no extra cost.
 
Despite a 2015 amendment to Ontario’s Building Code that mandates 15 per cent of units in a development be “barrier free,” Anderson’s problem is still common for people with mobility needs.
 
“There is what the Code asks for, and there is best practice,” explains Anderson. “What we’ve been doing with Daniels is recommending what’s best practice, what truly works.”
 
Daniels Corp. consulted Anderson for their new initiative and asked him to do a “roll-through” of a unit in a High Park-area building to spot potential problems for those with mobility needs. He found quite a few: doorways he couldn’t get through, balconies he couldn’t access, showers he couldn’t roll into, counters and cabinets too high to reach.
