Accessibility Advisory Committee

Accessibility Plan 2017-2021

The Corporation of the County of Prince Edward strives to meet the needs of its employees, residents, visitors, and customers with disabilities and is working hard to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.

The County is committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The Accessibility Plan 2017-2021 outlines the steps The County is taking to meet those requirements and to improve opportunities for people with disabilities. 

Accessible Customer Service

The County of Prince Edward is committed to providing accessible service for its customers. Goods and services will be provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of all customers. The provision of services to persons with disabilities will be integrated into standard operating customer services procedures wherever possible. Persons with disabilities will be given opportunities equal to those given to others to obtain, use, or benefit from the goods and services provided by and on behalf of the Municipality. Council endorsed policy and procedures in March 2010 and these documents are available by the links below. All documents required by the Ontario Regulation 429/07 are available in alternate format, upon request.
