SCUGOG ACCESSIBILITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Promoting a safe, healthy and livable community!
About 1.5 million Ontarians have a disability and may face barriers to accessibility. They may find it hard to access local services, enter public buildings or use public transit. While all levels of government are working to change this, municipal governments have a special role to play.
The Township of Scugog is committed to taking the necessary steps to increase its accessibility for persons with disabilities. Along with the Scugog Accessibility Advisory Committee, the Township has made some exciting advancements in accessibility and will continue to identify, remove and prevent barriers for persons with disabilities. The Township of Scugog is committed to being fully accessible to persons with disabilities, in accordance with the AODA, by 2025, to ensure all citizens can enjoy the full benefits our community has to offer.
Scugog Township will commit to be a welcoming and inclusive community by embracing accessibility and opportunity for all.
The Scugog Accessibility Advisory Committee will work in partnership with the community to identify and eliminate barriers for people with disabilities.
