Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was enacted by the Government of Ontario in 2005. The goal is to make Ontario accessible by 2025. The Act lays a framework for the development of province-wide mandatory standards on accessibility in all areas of daily life.

Ontario now has accessibility standards in five areas:
Customer Service
Employment
Information and Communications
Transportation
Design of Public Spaces

The Township of Nipissing has an Accessibility Plan which includes the required policies to support the Accessibility Standards.

The Township reviews the Accessibility Plan annually and the revision is presented to Council for approval. The approved plan is posted here on our website.

Feedback and ideas regarding accessibility throughout the Township are always welcome and encouraged. If you would like to submit information, ask a question or begin a dialogue regarding an accessibility issue, please contact the Township Office at 45 Beatty Street, Nipissing ON P0H 1W0 by mail; 705-724-2144 by phone; 705-724-5385 by fax; or by email at admin@nipissingtownship.com.
