Township of Bonnechere Valley Status Report 2021
Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005
The Township of Bonnechere Valley is committed to creating an accessible organization by removing barriers for people with disabilities. The Township has prepared this annual accessibility status report to describe the steps it has taken to meet the goals set out in its Accessibility Plan and to comply with the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Township employees have had to work from home from time to time and we have also had to install plexiglass at the front counter which makes it hard for people to hear through. To facilitate these changes, the Township has upgraded and purchased new technology to facilitate working from home, including assistive technologies, where necessary, to support employees.
Throughout 2021, the Township continued to provide communication supports and documents in accessible formats to the public, and to accommodate persons who require assistive devices, service animals or support persons while using our services. The Township continued to offer and provide accommodations to persons with disabilities in the employment recruitment process and to employees with disabilities. The Township continues to meet the needs of staff who require assistive technologies and/or modification of the physical workspace.
