(Barrie, ON) The week of May 30 to June 5, 2021 is National AccessAbility Week and the City of Barrie is also acknowledging a landmark anniversary. This year is the 20th anniversary of the City's Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC). The AAC's mandate is to champion issues related to the provision of an accessible community on behalf of all Barrie citizens.
“Over the last 20 years, Barrie's Accessibility Advisory Committee has made many strides in making our city more inclusive," notes Cheryl Dillon, Disability Management and Accessibility Specialist. “We truly value their insight, experiences and ideas as they support Council's strategic goal of ensuring Barrie offers opportunities for residents of all abilities to be involved in our community."
From 2001 to present day, some of the AAC achievements and highlights over the years include:
National AccessAbility Week takes place in late May each year. It's an opportunity to celebrate the valuable contributions of Canadians with disabilities, and recognize the efforts of individuals, communities and workplaces that are actively working to remove barriers. The City of Barrie proclaims May 30 to June 5 as AccessAbility Week and encourages all residents to support equality of access and opportunity for persons with disabilities.
