As a co-op, being inclusive is very important to us. And while it may not be possible for everyone to drive with Modo, our goal is to be as inclusive and accessible as possible in our service offering and how we how we show up in our communities. We continue to work toward a membership base that is more representative of the people that live in the communities we serve.
To date, the actions we have taken in support of inclusivity are varied, including the addition of wheelchair accessible vans, support for the LGBTQ+ community, making cars available to those who assist seniors, and extending our reach to smaller communities across BC. While we continue to build upon those actions, today we are making racial equity a matter of priority because we acknowledge that systemic racism negatively impacts access to services for racialized groups.
Anchored by our Purpose, we are committed to these aspects of inclusivity as they relate to anti-racism,
We believe these steps forward are within our control, helpful and just, and will result in Modo being a better and more inclusive business and co-operative.
Modo’s Accessibility Vans provide comfortable seating for up to four passengers, plus a wheelchair user. These vans provide much needed accessibility to hundreds of people in the wheelchair community, and is a favourite of many organizations, including Spinal Cord Injury BC.
Like all members of the community, seniors need to get around. We’re pleased to offer custom dedicated carshare services. If this is something you’d like to explore for your senior’s housing development, please contact Sylvain Celaire.
But sometimes our seniors need help getting around. Modo vehicles are perfect for volunteer driver programs who may want to drive, but don’t have a car. With gas, insurance and $5 million in third-party liability, using Modo is an affordable, convenient and risk-free way to help those in need.
