Accessibility

The Town of Spanish is committed to being responsive to the needs of all its residents and visitors. To do this, we must recognize the diverse needs of all of our residents and visitors by striving to provide services and facilities that are accessible to all. As a provider of goods and services, the Town of Spanish is committed to ensuring its goods and services are provided in an accessible manner.

The Town of Spanish will promote accessibility through the development of policies, procedures and practices and by ensuring they consider people with disabilities. To do this we will make reasonable efforts to ensure the policies, procedures and practices address integration, independence, dignity and equal opportunity.

The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Spanish recently adopted a Multi Year Accessibility Policy.    Town of Spanish Accessibility Policy
