The Town of Ajax is committed to the creation of an inclusive community by providing accessible facilities, programs and services for everyone to enjoy.

People with disabilities represent a growing part of our population. About 1.85 million (15.5%) of people in Ontario have a disability. In Ajax, this represents over 18,000 residents. These numbers will continue to grow considerably in the next decade as the population ages.

The Town of Ajax Multi-Year Accessibility Plan sets out the steps the Town will take to improve accessibility and meet the legislated requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). To assist Council and staff with this process, the Ajax Accessibility Advisory Committee reviews municipal policies, programs and services in order to identify, remove and prevent barriers faced by people with disabilities.

Feedback on accessibility in the Town of Ajax can be shared through the Town's online Customer Feedback Form.

Accessibility Reporting

To ensure that businesses and organizations are complying with the requirements of the AODA's Accessibility Standards, all public and private organizations are required to file online accessibility compliance reports with the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario every two calendar years.

As required by the Municipal Elections Act, within three months of an election, a report on the provision of accessible election/voting measures must be completed.
