Accessibility Standards

McMurrich Monteith Township is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for people of all ages and abilities. In doing so, we recognize the diverse needs of our community and strive to provide services and facilities that are accessible for everyone. McMurrich Monteith Township promotes accessibility through the development of its policies, procedures and practices that are consistent with the core principles of integration, independence, dignity and equal opportunity for persons with disabilities.

Legislation
In 2001, the Province of Ontario introduced the Ontarians with Disabilities Act (ODA), which, among other things, mandated the public sector to create an annual accessibility plan to identify, remove or prevent barriers to its goods and services.

Subsequently, in June 2005, the Province introduced the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to benefit all Ontarians by developing, implementing and enforcing a number of accessibility standards in order to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities by the year 2025. The AODA mandates both the public and private sectors.
