Our goal is to provide accessible goods, services and facilities for everyone in Meaford. The Accessibility Advisory Committee helps us to take down barriers, and follow the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 (AODA). We have an Accessibility Plan and Policy, and update Council on our progress ever year.
