Port Hawkesbury Accessibility

The Port Hawkesbury Accessibility Advisory Committee’s was formed by Town Council to assist in developing an Accessibility Plan in accordance with “An Act Respecting Accessibility in Nova Scotia, 2017” (The Act). 

 
The Accessibility Committee provides advice on identifying, preventing and eliminating barriers for   people with all ranges of abilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities.  The Committee plays a pivotal role in the creation of barrier-free community and ensuring the obligations under the Act are met.

 
To help us write this plan, we need to hear from persons with accessibility challenges of all kinds.

Please help us make Port Hawkesbury more accessible by first identifying the issues through answering the following questions about your knowledge and experience.

If you don't want to complete the survey, you can still share your thoughts with us by calling or leaving us a voicemail at (902) 625-7893, emailing info@townofph.ca or sending a message on our facebook group: ACCESSIBILITY IN PORT HAWKESBURY
