Accessibility

Ontario has laws to improve accessibility for people with disabilities, and one of the most important pieces of Legislation is the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act is to make Ontario a better place to live by creating a society that is equal. The Act not only sets long-term goals for both the Private and Public Sectors to make Ontario barrier-free by the year 2025, but also sets short and medium goals to ensure steady progress is made.

The Township of South-West Oxford's Multi-Year Accessibility Plan highlights accessibility initiatives that have been undertaken by the Township as well as proposed initiatives. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) provides for the development of minimum standards in order to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodations, employment, buildings, structures and premises on or before January 1, 2025.

The Township of South-West Oxford is committed to inspiring all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity. We are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner, and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The Township of South-West Oxford will strive to remove existing barriers that limit inclusion and will provide a status report publicly to be available each year to highlight our accessibility achievements.
