Volunteer Opportunity
Accessibility Advisory Committee

Are you looking to make a difference in your Community ? Why not consider serving as a volunteer member of the newly formed Accessibility Advisory Committee ?

The purpose of the AAC is to provide advice to Council on identifying, preventing and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities. The Committee will play an important role in helping the Municipality of the District of Barrington become an accessible community and meet its obligations under the Nova Scotia Accessibility Act.

At least one half of the members of the advisory committee must have a disability or represent an organization that represents people with disabilities. The other half of the committee will be members of Council.

Disability includes a physical, mental, intellectual, learning or sensory impairment including an episodic disability - that, in interaction with a barrier, hinders an individual’s full and effective participation in society.

Applications and Terms of Reference are available online at or can be picked up at the Municipal Office. Applications must be received by the undersigned not later than Monday March 16, 2020, at 2:00 p.m.
