Volunteer Opportunity: Accessibility Advisory Committee for the Municipality of Colchester

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 Accessibility Advisory Committee provides advice to the Municipality of Colchester on identifying, preventing, and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in programs, services, initiatives, and facilities. The Committee plays a pivotal role in helping the Municipality of Colchester to become accessible and in compliance with Nova Scotia’s Accessibility Act (2017)

Under the 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.

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.

If you’re interested in making a difference, we would love to hear from you! To apply, please complete the “Accessibility Advisory Committee Application Form" found below or the form can be picked up at 1 Church Street, Truro.

The deadline is September 30, 2020. Your completed application may be submitted by mail, in-person, or by email to:

Address: Municipality of Colchester, 1 Church Street, Truro, NS, B2N 3Z5
