Accessibility

We are proud to present our findings and report on the development of innovative strategies to remove and prevent future barriers for people with disabilities and the maturing population. We've filed the required compliance report to tell the Ontario government that we're continuing to meet the accessibility requirements. 

Woodstock accessibility plan

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 (AODA) and Ontarians with Disabilities Act S.O. 2001 (ODA) legislation, municipalities are required to develop annual accessibility plans.
