Accessibility Advisory Committee

The Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) provides advice to council on identifying, preventing, and removing barriers experienced by people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities.

The Accessibility Advisory committee plays a big part in helping the Town of Wolfville become a barrier‐free community and ensuring obligations under “An Act Respecting Accessibility in Nova Scotia” Chapter 2 of the Accessibility Act (2017) are met.

Committee members will play a role in drafting and revising the Town’s Accessibility Plan and they will provide comment, advice and recommendations on other timely matters.

With or without lived experience, committee members are encouraged to work as a team to build consensus and to offer recommendations that will improve access for all members of our community.

Commitment – meet at least four times a year Monday evening 4:30pm-5:30pm 2 or 3 year terms
