Multi-Year Accessibility Plan 2022-2025

We are updating our Multi-Year Accessibility Plan and we want to hear from you to better understand how we can enhance the accessibility and inclusivity of our services.

What is a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan?

A multi-year accessibility plan outlines our strategy to prevent and remove barriers for people with disabilities when accessing our goods, services, and facilities. This plan helps Northumberland County meet requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and its Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR).

Why are we updating it?

Our 2012-2021 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan will complete in 2021, meeting all compliance deadlines. The 2022-2025 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan will extend the County's commitment to meeting the accessibility standards under the AODA and renews our efforts to remove barriers and improve access to County services for people with disabilities.
