Accessibility Is Your Right!

A new Accessibility Advisory Committee for the Municipality of North Grenville has been appointed. The Committee’s main task is to provide guidance and direction to Council regarding the current and future needs of residents with respect to all aspects of accessibility including public infrastructure, services, and the development and application of related policies and bylaws.

The Committee will draw on a wide variety of input beginning with the knowledge, background and experience of Committee members, formal reports, studies and other Municipal experiences, advocacy groups and various levels of government, etc. But, most important in all of this, is your input, the residents of our fair Municipality.

It is critical that the Committee hear from you in order to determine your accessibility concerns/needs. We invite you to complete a short survey. If you would rather receive a hard copy of this survey to complete, or if you require any assistance with this survey, including receiving it in an alternative format, please email the Clerk’s Office at hbabcock-cormier@northgrenville.on.ca or call 613-258-9569 extension 178.

All responses will be tabulated and included in a formal report to Council, along with recommendations based on the Committee’s research and your responses. The findings of this survey and the accompanying report to Council will be posted to the Municipality’s website.

So please take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire so that the Committee might best represent your needs as the Municipality grows.

Responses will be kept confidential.
