ACCESSIBILITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The City of Mississauga's Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) was established in compliance with the Ontarians with Disabilities Act (ODA) in 2001.

The Accessibility Advisory Committee advises, recommends and assists the City in promoting and facilitating a barrier-free Mississauga for citizens of all abilities (universal accessibility) including person with disabilities. This is to be achieved through the review of municipal policies, programs and services and the identification, removal and prevention of barriers faced by persons with disabilities.

AAC initiatives include development of accessibility design guidelines; an awareness/sensitivity training program; a communications strategy; and a review of departmental plans and corporate policies in relation to accessibility.
