The District of North Saanich Council adopted a multi-year accessibility plan yesterday that outlines a strategy to remove and prevent accessibility barriers.
The plan is currently being rebranded for the District, and will be available online later this fall at northsaanich.ca/accessibility
District staff, along with the Town of Sidney and the District of Central Saanich, worked with consultants Left Turn Right Turn to complete the first-ever municipal accessibility plans for the three Saanich Peninsula municipalities.
This process has resulted in each municipality having its own accessibility plan, developed in consultation with the Saanich Peninsula Accessibility Advisory Committee (SPAAC).
The District of North Saanich is committed to offering persons with disabilities the opportunity to pursue healthy and balanced lifestyles. This commitment extends to residents, visitors, and employees with visible and/or non-visible disabilities.
The District affirms its commitment to meet the requirements of the Accessible British Columbia Act (Accessible BC Act).
An online form is also available for anyone who wishes to provide feedback on accessibility to the municipality.
