Lanark County’s Accessibility Advisory Committee seeks to improve accessibility throughout the County. The committee’s mandate is to produce an annual Accessibility Plan and to advise council on ways to improve accessibility in the County by removing existing barriers over time and by preventing new ones from being created.
Municipalities with 10,000 or more residents are required by the Ontarian's with Disabilities Act to have an Accessibility Advisory Committee. The committee is comprised of community volunteers and Council representation. A six-member staff development working group provides input into the accessibility planning process.
The Accessibility Advisory Committee reports to the Corporate Services Committee of Lanark County Council.
