Special Access and Medical Requirements

The A-frame Association encourages all eligible writers to apply. Special access or medical requirements will not affect a writer’s chance of being selected.

Some important details::

  • The A-frame is a DIY-built home that is over 60 years old in the outskirts of a rural hamlet. It is wheelchair accessible and the bathroom is equipped with mobility aids. The house is approximately 900 square feet. It is cozy and comfortably accommodates one or two people. On the first level, there is a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom, a snug with fireplace, and a living/dining room. The second level is a small loft, accessible by ladder.
  • Though many buildings in Ameliasburgh meet accessibility requirements, there are no commercial establishments in the hamlet. Belleville, a city of over 50,000, is 16 kilometres away and offers all the services of a thriving urban community, including a large regional hospital and a VIA Rail station.
  • While the A-frame has a no-pet policy, we make exceptions for service animals.

Please contact the program director at any stage of the application process to discuss any mobility or medical concerns, or any issues that affect your decision to apply to the program. The A-frame Association desires to accommodate all writers whenever possible. Reaching out helps us understand, assess and address potential barriers.
