Our Commitment to Accessibility

The Town's Accessibility Plan is delivered through a Joint Plan in partnership with and under the purview of Grey County. The Town is part of the Grey County Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee.

Members of the Grey County Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee include 50% or more members of the Grey County community who have a disability, as well as non-voting staff representatives from Georgian Bluffs, Grey Highlands, Hanover, Meaford, Southgate, The Blue Mountains and West Grey.

More information about the Grey County Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee can be obtained through Grey County's Clerk's department or by visiting the Grey County website.

The legislation governing the Town's Accessibility Plan is called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
