The Township of West Lincoln is dedicated to providing a high level of service to members of the community. An inclusive, accessible and barrier-free environment both at Township facilites and through our website allows for this.

Township of West Lincoln Accessibility Plan

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requires an accessibility plan to be made each year. Our accessibility plan addresses the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to persons with disabilities in our Township. This includes:

  • A report on the steps we have taken to identify, remove and prevent barriers to people with disabilities
  • How we assess our proposals for by-laws, policies, programs and services
  • A list of by-laws, policies, programs and services we will review in the coming year to identify barriers
  • How we intend to identify, remove, and prevent barriers in the coming year

All municipalities are required to make their accessibility plans available to the public. You can download the Township's Multi-Year Accessibility Plan below.
