Barrie is one of Ontario's leading communities in accessibility and we need your help to keep it this way.

Like all Ontario municipalities, Barrie must meet and maintain legislated requirements set in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) including implementing and continually updating a multi-year Accessibility Plan.

Thank you for sharing your experiences!

The community shared their experiences through the Accessibility Survey and the Opportunity Map to help us learn what you believe is needed to make Barrie more accessible. Your feedback is being used to help set priorities and goals for the City's 2019–2024 Accessibility Plan.

A draft plan was approved by General Committee on Monday, December 10, 2018. It is on the agenda for final approval by City Council on Monday, December 17, 2018.
