Comox Valley

Listing in alphabetical order, I will try to give a good selection of places to hang out and enjoy participating in our community. There are many wonderful restaurants in Comox Valley as listed on the Comox Valley Restaurant Site. Most of these are wheelchair accessible – as in – a wheelchair can enter. There are few restaurant owners that still do not seem to determine the need to make their spaces accessible to everyone in the community. You can find them listed here as I stumble upon them.
There are a few restaurants that I could not get permission to list as accessible. I respect that decision.
That said, it was requested that I list restaurants with washrooms that are acessible and note which ones are non-gendered, or have access for a companion or assistant to accommodate the different scenarios we find our selves in, whether to assist our parents,partners, children and others for whom assistance may be required... or for whom a gendered washroom brings discomfort for any reason.
For this request and reason I am listing those restaurants that are fully wheelchair accessible (including having accessible washrooms). To facilitate this, I came up with the following symbols:
This symbol 2 people denotes places that have washrooms which are available for a person with an assistant - such as a family washroom, or washroom which is not designated for anyone or gender in particular and is wheelchair accessible at the very least.
Please note, this is work in progress..

Accommodating some dietary concerns:
This symbol gluten free is a flag to note that this place serves gluten free menu items.
This symbol vegan is a flag to note that this place serves vegan menu items.

Together we can create a more inclusive community for everyone. I support local people who are actively working to achieve this.

No Access

These spaces are not accessible by wheelchair – that is, a wheelchair user can not get into the place – and the places are not expected to be accessible in any near future...I could not get in to discover more about them.
