The County of Frontenac, in partnership with the Frontenac Accessibility Advisory Committee (FAAC), created this award in 2013 to recognize persons, groups or organizations that have made or are making a significant contribution beyond legislated requirements, towards improving access for persons with disabilities in the County of Frontenac.

Access can include designing new or renovated buildings, an employment program, a transportation system, a recreational or leisure program, or anything that contributes significantly to persons with disabilities living independently.

Last year, the Access Award went to John Weatherall. Weatherall donated land on Wolfe Island to build a seniors apartment building which enables seniors to live independently in their community, which opened in Marysville in November 2017.

Previous recipients are the Verona Lions Club (2013), Joe Ryan and Brenden Hicks of Accessible Living (2014), Doug Lovegrove of Verona (2015) and the Bellrock Community Hall Association (216).
