Accessibility

Woodstock is committed to removing barriers that enable all members of the public to access City services and programs. We follow the regulations within the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and file our accessibility compliance report every two years to tell the Ontario government that we're continuing to meet the accessibility requirements. 

Accessibility Plan

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 (AODA), municipalities are required to establish, implement, maintain and document a multi-year accessibility plan that outlines our strategy to prevent and remove barriers for persons living with disabilities in our community. We are also required to maintain an accessibility policy as part of our requirements under AODA. These plans must be made available to the public, along with the annual status report of our multi-year accessibility plan. 

2023 - 2027 Multi-year Accessibility Plan

The 2023-2027 Multi-year Accessibility Plan was approved by Woodstock City Council at the May 10th meeting.
