Accessibility is Advantageous for Businesses. Why?

Everyone wants access. We want to wander freely and safely in our neighborhoods. We want to work, shop, play, and study wherever we live. Essentially, we want to get where we need to go and do what we need to do.

We lose potential when persons with disabilities are unable to access or navigate a facility, whether it is a company, an office, or a community center. As a respected employee. A devoted consumer. A willing participant. Even if unintentionally, people receive the message that their requirements are unique and, for whatever reason, cannot be addressed.

Canada takes pride in being a country that values variety and cares for its people. Improving accessibility is another approach to do this. It inherently promotes inclusivity. And it strengthens and sustains our communities.

With one in every five Canadian people anticipated to have a handicap by 2036, owing to our aging population, we must reconsider how we access and use all of our environments. Scootaround Canada, thus, provides wheelchairs for sale and mobility scooters for sale in Canada to help disabled people with their mobility.

Accessibility: makes sense and cents

Making companies and public spaces more physically accessible for individuals with disabilities has a strong commercial case, as shown by the Conference Board of Canada’s report, The Business Case to Build Physically Accessible Environments [2018].

Real expenditure by people with disabilities is expected to increase at a rate three times that of the general population over the next 12 years. This will amount to a staggering $316 billion yearly or 21% of the entire consumer market.

In the coming years, a huge portion of the population with impairments will be Baby Boomers who have left their job. However, for others, employment changes would free up more than 500,000 Canadians with disabilities to work longer hours. By 2030, this would result in a $16.8 billion boost in our GDP (gross domestic product).

According to the study, 57% of physically disabled Canadians who are now unemployed think they could find employment if workplaces were more accessible. Nearly half (49%) of working Canadians with physical disabilities think their hours could increase if businesses were made more accessible.

Simply stated, everyone in Canada benefits from accessibility. A rising number of individuals with disabilities will be given more employment possibilities, be able to work longer hours and make more money if our workplaces are made more physically accessible. Business owners and service providers will attract more consumers or clients and, eventually, generate more cash if our stores, restaurants, and recreational and sporting facilities are more accessible and inclusive of a larger range of individual requirements.


Accessibility improvements demonstrate how Canadians are committed to fostering mutual success. It guarantees that our nation, as well as our neighborhoods, may improve even more. And it is the ultimate conclusion.

More customers will visit businesses if they are accessible to everybody. When one person with a disability enters a restaurant, it usually signifies that one or two other persons will join them. This has a significant financial influence on our economy, a good one. All Canadians must be able to participate and thrive for Canada to be prosperous. Scootaround Canada aims to provide disabled people their freedom of mobility by providing them with all types of mobility aids under one roof. You can get your desired mobility devices or wheelchairs for sale in Canada delivered to your doorstep.
