ACCESS Dufferin-Peel is a Working Group comprised of board employee groups and education partners who are working together to provide accessible facilities and services for those with disabilities in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians With Disabilities, 2005 (AODA) and the Ontarians with Disabilities Act (ODA), 2001. The purpose of the AODA and the ODA is to improve opportunities for people with disabilities and to provide for their involvement in the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to their full participation in the life of the province. It is the Working Group’s responsibility to develop, implement and evaluate the board’s annual accessibility plans (the board adopted its initial Accessibility Plan in September 2003) and to ensure the continual improvement of access to board facilities, policies, programs, practices and services for students, staff, parents/guardians, volunteers and members of the community with disabilities.
