The Township of Scugog is currently accepting applications for committee members for the Scugog Accessibility, Diversity, Inclusion, Equity Advisory Committee (SADIE). 

Township of Scugog's Commitment  

The Township of Scugog is committed to ensuring that people of all ages and abilities enjoy the same opportunities as they live, work, play visit and invest in our community. 

Along with the Township of Scugog's SADIE Advisory Committee, Scugog continues to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities to be a welcoming and inclusive community by embracing accessibility and opportunity for all. 

In June 2005, the Ontario Government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), with a vision of a fully accessible Ontario by 2025. 

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) has developed accessibility standards in five areas: 

  1. Customer service standard 
  2. Information and communications standard 
  3. Employment Accommodation standard 
  4. Transportation standard 
  5. Design of public spaces (built environment) 

Businesses and organizations in Ontario must follow these standards. 

Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation 

As part of the AODA, the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) requires the Township to: 

  • Create policies and procedures 
  • Create a multi-year accessibility plan
  • Prepare an annual status report  
  • Acquire goods and services that meet accessibility criteria 
  • Provide staff training 

The Township of Scugog's Accessibility Standards Policy and Customer Service Standards Policy, explains how Township achieves and maintains accessibility by meeting the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the Integrated Accessibility Standards, Ontario Regulation 191/11. 

To plan for accessibility in Scugog, the Township creates a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan that outlines the steps to be taken to prevent barriers and meet provincial accessibility requirements.

To assist the Township of Scugog's Council and staff with this process, Scugog's SADIE Advisory Committee provides advice, reviews the plan, policies, programs and services to help identity, remove and prevent accessibility barriers.

The Township of Scugog's 2024-2028 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan outlines what the Township will do to improve accessibility and meet AODA requirements.

Accessibility Compliance Report(s) 

To ensure that businesses and organizations are complying with the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) accessibility standards, all public and private organizations are required to file online accessibility compliance reports with the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario every two calendar years.
