Mayor's Accessibility Advisory Committee

Mayor's Accessibility Advisory Committee LogoOn June 13, 2005, The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), received Royal Assent and is now law. The purpose of this legislation is to benefit all Ontarians by developing, implementing and enforcing accessibility standards in order to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities by 2025. The provincial government, in collaboration with persons with disabilities will develop these standards that public and private sector bodies who provide goods and services will have to meet.

It is important to note, the City of Niagara Falls Mayor’s Accessibility Advisory Committee was formed back in 1997 to deal with accessibility issues in Niagara Falls for disabled persons. The Committee's goals are to educate the public, and increase barrier free accessibility in our community for both residents and visitors.

The committee consists of community members with a keen interest in AODA and Accessibility matters. The committee has approximately 10-14 members, chosen by City Council, who meet at least 6 times per year. The City believes that an accessible community is a healthy community.  The committee will also assist local businesses (on a request basis) with information on accessibility consulting services, audits and accessibility displays.

Mission Statement

At the City of Niagara Falls, we value accessibility, and look to provide accessible options with all our services. It is our mission to educate the public, and increase barrier-free accessibility in our community for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.
