The Township of Selwyn recognizes that persons with disabilities should be provided with an equal opportunity to access goods and information in a manner consistent with the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality. The Township has adopted an Accessible Customer Service Standards Policy which acts as a guiding document for ensuring inclusivity for all.

The Township has developed various initiatives and incorporated several tools that support accessibility:

Accessibility Advisory Committee

The Joint Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) provides information and recommendations to Township and County Councils with regard to accessibility issues. The Committee strives to reduce barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities.

Accessible Customer Service Standards Policy & Plan
Browsealoud

The Township has made our website more accessible and available for everyone by offering Browsealoud, a web accessibility toolbar that helps make navigating our website more user friendly for those with accessibility difficulties. 

The Browsealoud toolbar is located at the top right-hand section of the website.

'Time in My Shoes' Program

The Time in My Shoes program, offered through the Accessibility Advisory Committee, allows students to better appreciate and understand the experiences of individuals with disabilities and some of the assistive devices they use to fully participate in daily life.

"One of our main goals with the Time in My Shoes program is to demonstrate that people with disabilities are active and involved community members." stated Alec Denys, AAC Member.
