To implement the Corporate Accessibility Policy and Procedures we’ve developed a plan that explains how we will put into action the Policy over the next 5 years and through to 2021.
At the City, we adopt a coordinated approach to making our programs and services more accessible. We have two main priorities related to accessibility:
- To meet the requirements of the AODA (2005) Standards for Customer Service and the Integrated Accessibility Standard Regulation.
- To build awareness with City staff to support identifying, removing, and preventing barriers for people with disabilities.
To learn more about the City’s strategy for meeting its priorities related to accessibility, please see the Multi-Year Accessibility Plan.
How are we doing on accessibility?
We welcome comments on the accessibility of our services. Contact us to share your feedback.
All of the City of Guelph’s documents required under the AODA are available in accessible formats upon request. To request documents related to accessible customer service, our Multi-Year Accessibility Plan, or to request an alternate format of our Accessibility Policy, please contact the Accessibility Service Coordinator at [email protected], 519-822-1260 extension 2670, TTY 519-826-9771.
Customers who use TTY can access all City of Guelph services with a single TTY number. People who are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, or with speech disabilities can call 519-826-9771.
