The Circle of Excellence showcases accessibility by celebrating best practices towards universal access, and recognizing leadership in creating accessible spaces for people with disabilities.

Meaford Hall was recognized due to “the commitment to incorporating numerous accessibility renovations within this historic landmark, and the dedication to turning it into an inclusive community hub for both residents and tourists alike.”

Meaford Hall strives to be the area’s premier arts and cultural centre, offering diverse programming from stage performances and movie screenings, to paint nights and facility rentals. It also houses Meaford’s Tourism Information Centre.

We are so proud to be able to offer a wide range of accessible programming from this iconic local landmark.” said Hall manager Susan Lake.
