AMANS has coordinated with the Board representatives and the Accessibility Directorate office to organize regional training workshops on Accessibility. The sessions will be two hours in length and have Gerry Post and Joshua Bates from the Directorate’s office in attendance. Workshop participants will learn helpful tips on how to comply with the act and, most importantly, meet the accessibility needs of your community. The workshop will offer a recommended approach to forming an Accessibility Advisory Committee and developing your accessibility plan. Many of the steps that will be shared were piloted in the Town of Wolfville, which developed Nova Scotia’s first comprehensive municipal accessibility plan. It is highly recommended that senior administrative leaders and accessibility coordinators come (others are also welcome to attend).
This workshop will be for the South Western Shore Region and held in Town of Yarmouth's Town Hall beginning at 10:00 a.m. running until 12:00 p.m.
