The Accessibility Advisory Committee was established in accordance with the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001, and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. Its purpose is to advise County Council on ways to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities with respect to County programs, services, and facilities.
The Accessibility Advisory Committee provides advice, for Council's consideration regarding the identification, removal, and prevention of barriers to persons with disabilities. It also provides input and consultation to staff regarding the preparation, implementation, and monitoring of the County's accessibility plans. The Simcoe County Accessibility Advisory Committee reports to the Council Committee of the Whole.
Recommendations contained within reports of the Accessibility Advisory Committee are not considered final until they have been approved by County Council.
