The Haldimand County Accessibility Advisory Committee (HCAAC) is a key resource and contributor to accessibility planning issues in all departments of Haldimand County. The HCAAC is dedicated to promoting a barrier free environment for all persons, regardless of needs, to participate as fully as possible in all aspects of community life. It is a legislated committee of active community volunteers who represent or provide a general knowledge of a wide range of disabilities including: physical, visual, hearing impairment, intellectual, mental health, senior’s issues, and communication. The committee has access to resources to consider all disabilities when making recommendations. A County appointed Staff Liaison works with the HCAAC to help facilitate the process. The HCAAC is developing protocol to play a critical role in advising County Staff on various topics including site plan applications, renovations for County owned facilities and all department purchases.
The HCAAC will be involved with educating and advising Haldimand County’s citizens on the AODA accessibility standards that are currently being developed, and how these regulations will be audited, monitored, and formally inspected. Presently, the HCAAC will gain understanding about the common standards being developed including customer service issues, such as business practices and employee training. Most importantly, the HCAAC generates ideas and ignites initiative for the development and implementation of the annual Accessibility Plan.
