Want to make a difference in our community?
The Municipality is looking for interested individuals to join our Accessibility Advisory Committee. This committee will provide advice to the municipal council on identifying, preventing and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities. This committee will be vital in making our community accessible; one of the first areas of focus for the committee will be developing a five-year municipal accessibility plan.
At least one half of the members of this committee will have a disability or represent an organization that works with and represents people living with disabilities.
As a starting point Disability will be defined to include a physical, mental, intellectual, learning or sensory impairment -including an episodic disability- that in interaction with a barrier hinders an individual’s full and effective participation in society. A definition will be agreed upon by the committee through the process of developing an Accessibility Plan for the County.
Applications are available here, can be picked up at the municipal building at 285 Beech Hill Rd, or call Tammy at 902 863 1117 and she will make arrangements to get an application to you. Deadline for applications is 12 noon local time on Friday July 31st, 2020.
For additional information you can email Tammy.firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 902 863 1117.
The Terms of Reference for the Committee can be found here.
