The Municipality of Kincardine is working to remove barriers to accessibility and create an inclusive community.

We offer the entire community and visiting public the opportunity to fully experience many of our beaches, parks, washrooms and businesses.


The Ring my Bell Project is to help make businesses easier to access.

Customers can ring the bell when they:

  • Need help entering a business e.g., have a walker, stroller, or mobility issues
  • Would like the ramp out (for stores with ramps) 

 Doorbells are to be placed at the front entrance. A poster has been provided to alert your customers that they can “ring your bell” for assistance. 

Doorbells have been provided by the Kincardine Canadian Tire and the Municipality of Kincardine.   

Should you have questions contact

These mats are a walkway across the sand allowing for easy access to the water's edge. They enhance mobility for people with wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and other mobility devices. They also assist with people who have difficulty walking on the uneven sand.

Each year the mats are installed the last week of June and removed the week after Labour day, at Station Beach and MacPherson Beach.

The mats were purchased with generous donations from Bruce Power and the Kincardine Rotary Club in partnership with the Kincardine Agricultural Society and the Community Foundation Grey Bruce.

This special wheelchair can maneuver on the sand and is fully submersible in the water.

You can reserve the Beach Wheelchair for free from the Victoria Day long weekend in May through to Labour Day in September. To reserve and for additional details, please contact the Kincardine Welcome Centre at 519-396-2731 or email

The Rotary Club of Kincardine generously donated the beach wheelchair to the community.

There is a wide selection of parks and facilities that are wheelchair accessible and have accessible picnic tables.

You can access a free deployable ramp at various businesses throughout the Municipality. Each business owner displays an “Access Ramp Available Upon Request” sign with a contact number.

Access a Ramp

You can access a ramp in two different ways.

  • Call to ask for the ramp to be put out;
  • A companion can enter the business and ask for the ramp to be put out.

The ramps can be found at

  • Finchers Ltd.
  • Dairy Queen
  • Becker Shoes
  • Hawgs Breath Saloon and Deli
  • Coldwell Banker The Property Shoppe
  • Gemini Jewellers
  • Queen Street Business Centre
  • West Shore Clothing
  • The Loop
  • Sunlife Financial
  • Station Beach Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar

The Community Ramp Project was developed by the StopGap Foundation. This allows communities to supply free deployable entry ramps to businesses with single stepped storefronts which prevent access to many people.

The Municipality's Accessibility Advisory Committee worked with the Kincardine BIA and Kincardine District Secondary School to make the ramps and get the word out.
