Accessibility

The County of Huron Accessibility Plan is a joint initiative of all municipal councils within the county. It is developed by the HCAAC in collaboration with the Huron County Disability Act Working Group. As a lower tier of the County of Huron, we are encompassed under the County’s Accessibility Plan. Details on the County of Huron's Accessibility Plan can be found here.

The Council of the Township of North Huron at the February 16, 2016 Council Meeting endorsed the:
Huron County Annual Accessibility Plan – 2016

Multi-Year Accessibility Plan, 2015

This plan is prepared annually and includes:

  • Measures taken to identify, remove and prevent barriers to persons with disabilities;
  • Measures to ensure proposals for bylaws, programs, practices and services are considered for their effect on accessibility;
  • Creating a list of by-laws, policies, programs, practices and services that will be reviewed in the next year to identify, prevent and remove barriers.

Accessibility Standard for Information and Communications

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities standards established by the Ontario government are the rules that businesses and organizations in Ontario will follow to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.

The Township of North Huron’s accessibility standards for customer service ensure that our goods and services are accessible to everyone.
Accessible formats and communication supports are available by contacting the Township of North Huron Municipal Office.
