Volunteers sought for regional accessibility committee

Durham Region is now accepting expressions of interest for volunteer membership on the Durham Region Accessibility Advisory Committee.

Expressions of interest must be submitted by March 29. A decision on the appointments will be made by regional council in May.

Membership is open to Durham residents with an interest in the region’s accessibility initiatives. Those interested should have an awareness and knowledge of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and its standards.

Interested individuals are asked to submit a brief biography and statement of interest by email to or by mail to: Accessibility Co-ordinator, The Regional Municipality of Durham, 605 Rossland Road East, P.O. Box 623, Whitby, Ont.,  L1N 6A3

Appointed members will be expected to attend Tuesday afternoon meetings, six times per year, along with occasional sub-committee meetings at regional headquarters, 605 Rossland Road East in Whitby.

The Durham Region AAC is a volunteer advisory committee that provides advice to regional council on accessibility matters and is involved in awareness and outreach activities. The committee is composed of 11 members, including: one regional councillor, at least six citizen members who identify as a person with a disability defined within the AODA, and the remainder of individuals representing organizations providing services in Durham Region to persons with disabilities.
