QuickContractors.com Wins Ontario March of Dimes Community Partnership Award 2007
Quick Contractors presented with the Community Partnership Award by the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario at the Ontario March of Dimes 2007 General Meeting.
For their commitment to barrier-free design, QuickContractors.com was awarded the 2007 Ontario March of Dimes Community Partnership Award, presented to an organization or community group for outstanding collaboration with Ontario March of Dimes in support of persons with disabilities. Created in 1997, this award recognizes the significance of the partner relationships across Ontario that further March of Dimes’ goals and contribute to its success.
QuickContractors.com acts as a quality control group that links consumers with reliable, pre-screened and properly insured contractors. The organization has partnered with March of Dimes to provide a source that allows contractors across Canada to learn how to construct barrier-free renovations and to become more sensitive to accessibility issues.Recently, they held the 2nd Annual Accessibility Awareness Golf Tournament in support of the Accessible Home Renovation Project, in conjunction with March of Dimes. The project provided a charity barrier-free home renovation for a Cambridge family.
“QuickContractors.com has worked very hard to ensure that many of its 500+ contractors are familiar with what is involved in accessible home and office renovations,” says Joe Blasik, who nominated the organization for the award.
