Call for Accessibility Committee Volunteers!

Volunteer Opportunity:
Accessibility Advisory Committee

 

Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC):

The Town of Wolfville has been appointed as a test pilot for developing an Accessibility Plan under the Accessibility Act, and as such, requires the help of volunteers to serve as part of an Accessibility Advisory Committee (ACC).

The Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) provides advice to Council on identifying, preventing and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities. The Committee plays a pivotal role in helping the Town of Wolfville become a barrier-free community and ensuring obligations under An Act Respecting Accessibility in Nova Scotia (2017) are met.

At least one half of the members of the ACC must be persons with disabilities or representatives from organizations representing persons with disabilities.

Disability includes a physical, mental, intellectual, learning or sensory impairment, including an episodic disability; that, in interaction with a barrier, hinders an individual’s full and effective participation in society.


Applications are available online or can be picked up at Town Hall. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 25th, 2018 at 4:30 pm and may be submitted by mail, in person or by email to:

Address: 359 Main St. Wolfville, NS B4P 1A1
