Accessibility planning plays a key role in improving access for County residents, employees, and visitors. In accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, the County of Simcoe developed and implemented the 2019-2023 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan. The plan was created with the input of the Accessibility Advisory Committee. It outlines the County of Simcoe's strategy to prevent and remove barriers and meet the requirements of accessibility legislation over a five year period. The plan also outlines the County of Simcoe's accessibility achievements for 2014 - 2017. A comprehensive review of the plan will be completed every five years unless significant changes necessitate an earlier review.
Accessibility planning does not end once a plan is prepared and documented. Monitoring is essential to ensuring that the County is meeting its obligations and commitments. An annual report will be prepared on the progress being made toward implementation.
