3) Wheelchair Accessible Van

A wheelchair accessible van commenced operation on February 3, 2014. This specialized van is equipped with a ramp for persons who are using a wheelchair or walker or who cannot ride in a regular vehicle as used by the volunteer drivers. The van is centered in Burk’s Falls to serve clients living in the area from South River south to Novar including McMurrich/Monteith; east to Kearney and west to Magnetawan. This endeavor was put forth by the Almaguin Highlands Health Centre through a proposal to the North East Local Health Integration Network in order to enhance transportation to medical and other related appointments. Seniors are charged $.25 per kilometer.
