History

The Province proclaimed the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001. It came into force on September 30, 2002. Under the Act, Municipalities must establish or continue to have an accessibility advisory committee. The Committee advises Council on all matters related to its accessibility plan. According to the Act, the majority of the members on the committee must be people with disabilities. Before purchasing, leasing, or constructing a building or structure Council must first ask the committee to evaluate all accessibility related issues.

As a result, the Clarington Accessibility Advisory Committee was established in March 2003, when Report CLD-11-03 was adopted.
