The Art Gallery of Hamilton recognizes the diversity of people’s abilities and needs. We strive to make our collections, exhibitions, programs and services accessible to all. We are committed to work in partnership with staff, volunteers and the community to identify, prevent and remove barriers to participation.
As an organization, we respect and uphold the requirements set forth under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), and its associated standards and regulations.
