Many people with disabilities cannot utilize a standard toilet, and instead require equipment such as a height-adjustable changing table to use the bathroom in safety and comfort. In the United Kingdom, adult changing tables are gaining wide support thanks to the advocacy of disabled people and the Changing Places Consortium. In the United States, 9 airports have introduced bathrooms with adult changing tables. Similar campaigns in Canada are beginning to form, and there have been some successes — two Canadian airports have installed the facilities, and more airports are preparing to do so.
This article highlights those airports that have installed adult changing stations, helping to keep disabled people off the bathroom floor while traveling by air with a disability. Using the information in this article, you’ll be able to locate adult changing tables in Canadian airports to better plan an accessible journey.
