Help Us Lead Other Municipalities Adopt Our Accessible Parking By-Law 

RH Mobility has actively been encouraging other Municipalities to adopt the Parking By-Law that the City of Richmond Hill has, which allows RH Mobility to help make the City of Richmond Hill more accessible and by helping disabled residents of Richmond Hill improve their quality of life.

Please help create awareness about this great initiative and present it to your own Town Councils. For more information regarding the By-Law, please contact us at 289-695-5625 or richmondhillmobility@gmail.com.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your support of our event this week. To partner with the Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation and present such a valuable award in honour of John Weir really helps strengthen the event and reinforces the important message of honouring the great work done by the volunteers in our community.  From the award background, to the descriptions, photos and video collected from Vito was exactly what we were looking for and I hope you enjoyed the video.  Thanks again and looking forward to the next ceremony in 2023.  RichmondHill.ca/VolunteerAwards
