Key Industries Gets Over $45,000 In Funding

Over $45,000 dollars going towards making Key Industries more accessible. 

Saint John MP Rodney Weston making the funding announcement, calling it one of the things we can do to enhance the work done by the organization, which provides services to adults who have disabilities. 

President and CEO Christine Evans says they have already upgraded the floor and the door, and they will continue upgrading the elevator so getting around is much easier for those who work and visit the building. Evans tells CHSJ News it's important they retain their dignity and feel a sense of independence.

Sarah Woolven, who teaches IT in the building, is in a wheelchair and says the upgrades mean she doesn't have to ask someone to help her if she wants to go upstairs or downstairs.
