We will notify you if there is a planned or unplanned disruption to Town services that might affect accessibility. We post notices in the applicable service area and on our website, as well as through other methods depending on the circumstance.

Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

Our Multi-Year Accessibility Plan (MYAP) aligns with the goals in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to identify, remove and prevent barriers that restrict opportunities for people with disabilities. It describes our plans to identify and remove these barriers for all Town facilities and services. The plan also outlines the progress we’ve made over the past years and sets a course for the future.

View our current status report on the MYAP.

We developed the MYAP and status reports with input from staff, the Accessibility Advisory Committee and the public.

The federal and provincial governments enforce the following accessibility legislation to remove barriers to disabilities and make Ontario completely accessible by 2025.
