The Town of Perth intends to reduce accessibility barriers and demonstrate commitment to residents living with disability with an updated five-year Accessibility Plan.

Director Shannon Baillon emphasized that, while the Town does not currently have an accessibility committee, the importance of accessibility is “ingrained” in every project and recommendation brought to council.

The Director added that staff are always available to address concerns for current infrastructure, while initiatives proposed for the future are designed with accessibility in the forefront.

Director Baillon’s comments came during a discussion of the Town’s Accessibility Plan at Tuesday’s Committee of the Whole. The Plan includes measures to ensure accessibility in every realm from customer service and physical structures to standards of communication and employment.

In addition to its five-year review, the plan is reviewed annually to assess necessary changes and budget implications.
