Accessibility regulations are the tools by which we can achieve an inclusive society. Inclusion is a social attitude and physical approach to embrace diversity and personal differences in order to promote equal opportunity for all people. It is a responsibility we all share; it means you and me working together for a better future.
To achieve our goals in accessibility and inclusion it is important to establish a framework to help guide our actions and push this culture shift. Below is a copy of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation, along with City of Belleville policy and procedure documents related to accessibility.
Update! The new City of Belleville Multi Year Accessibility Plan for 2018 - 2022 is currently under review by the Belleville Accessibility Advisory Committee before final editng and presentation to Council later this year. Upon completion and Council approval, the new Multi Year Plan will be added to this page.
Update! The current accessibility feedback process is being reviewed and updated. The City would like to encourage a higher level of public feedback through this reporting method so that data can be collected to ensure we are being responsive to the needs of our community.
Coming Soon! Currently in the planning stages is a resource which will feature accessibility evaluations of municipally owned properties. The resource will hope to promote the integrated use of current accessible sites and facilities, while also serving as a barrier identification method to assist with future accessibility planning. Updates to follow soon!
