Accessibility Advisory Committee
Volunteer Committee Members Needed
In 2017, Nova Scotia became the third province in Canada to pass accessibility legislation,committing to a more equitable and accessible province. The Accessibility Act recognizes accessibility as a human right and sets a goal to make Nova Scotia an accessible province by 2030.
The goal of the Act is to prevent and remove barriers that restrict people with disabilities fromfully participating in society.
Each municipality is required to form an Accessibility Advisory Committee. The role of the Accessibility Advisory Committee is to advise the municipal unit on identifying, preventing, andeliminating accessibility barriers to municipal programs, services, and infrastructure. The Committee will play a key role in developing the accessibility plan for the municipality andultimately, help the municipality become an accessible community.
Under the Accessibility Act, at least half of the committee members must have a disability orrepresent an organization that represents people with disabilities.Interested in becoming a member of this committee?Interested in making a difference?If so, we would love to hear from you!To apply, please complete the ‘Citizen Volunteer Application for Boards, Committees, Societies’ form, or, for more information, please contact:
