PUBLIC NOTICE
Customer Service Accessibility Reporting

 

The Municipality of Morris-Turnberry is committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity in all aspects of its service delivery and its work environment as it relates to accessibility. We are a proven supporter of accessibility for all citizens and have made considerable progress to enhance the inclusivity and accessibility of our service. The Municipality of Morris-Turnberry has worked in conjunction with the Huron County Accessibility Committee as well as Municipal staff to implement the requirements of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2001 (ODA) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 (AODA), including the Accessibility Standard for Customer Service, the first of four regulations to be implemented under the AODA.

The focus of our accessibility planning efforts has been on meeting the requirements of the Customer Service Standard for public sector agencies by the required compliance date of January 1, 2010. We have successfully achieved compliance with the expectations of the Customer Service Standard and now face the tasks associated with ensuring compliance with the remaining four standards: Information and Communication, Employment, Transportation and the Built Environment.

Available is the Compliance Report we have filed with the Province. If you have any questions, or if you have any issues with regards to accessibility within the Municipality of Morris-Turnberry, please do not hesitate to contact Nancy Michie, Administrator Clerk-Treasurer at 519-887-6137.
