Accessibility

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is provincial legislation requiring municipalities to address issues around disabilities and barriers to accessibility.

The AODA requires all Ontario municipalities to:

  • Develop an Annual Accessibility Plan, in consultation with people with disabilities
  • Appoint an Accessibility Advisory Committee if over 10,000 in population
  • Make the Accessibility Plan available to the public

The Huron County Accessibility Advisory Committee (HCAAC) is an advisory committee to County Council made up of community members. This committee provides vision, guidance and advice of the removal of barriers to accessibility to all municipal councils within the Huron County.

Customer Service Accessibility Reporting

To ensure that businesses comply with requirements of the AODA’s Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, all public and private organizations are required to file annual online accessibility reports with the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario.

Awards

The Huron County Accessibility Committee is happy to announce the Opening of their annual awards program. The purpose of the awards program is to celebrate organizations and individuals who are working to build a more accessible society. These people make a difference in the lives of thousands of Canadians living with a disability.
