The Accessibility Committee
The Accessibility Advisory Committee provides advice to Council on identifying, preventing, and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives, and facilities. The committee plays a pivotal role in helping the Town of Westville become a barrier-free community and ensuring its obligations under Nova Scotia’s Accessibility Act are met. It monitors the progress of the Town accessibility initiatives which are reported annually.
The Committee members must contain a majority of persons with disabilities.
In 2017 the province of Nova Scotia passed the Accessibility Act, setting the goal of an accessible Nova Scotia by 2030. The Committee has put together an Accessibility Plan which focuses on Awareness, Goods and Services, Information and Communication, Transportation, Employment and Built Environment to assist the Town to meet this goal.
