Creating Solutions through innovation and Standardization
In partnership with the Canadian Council of the Blind CCB. Gateway Navigation CCC Ltd. Was incorporated in 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia as a community contribution company. Dedicated to improving the accessibility of interior spaces for individuals who are blind, deaf-blind or visually impaired. Just as smart phone-based GPS has made exterior navigation easier for everyone, so Gateway supports audio-based navigation ABN network solutions that make unfamiliar and complex building interiors more accessible and inclusive to the over one and half million Canadians who are blind, deaf-blind or visually impaired.
Our focus is to adapt these systems to the Canadian context, while supporting global efforts to standardize the planning, design, implementation and monitoring of accessible audio based indoor and outdoor navigation networks.
