Milton Accessibility Advisory Committee (MAAC)

Mission Statement

The goal of the Milton Accessibility Advisory Committee is to advise Town Council and staff, in accordance with the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, in promoting and facilitating a barrier-free Town for all residents and visitors, including persons with disabilities. 

About MAAC

The Milton Accessibility Advisory Committee was established in 2003 to advise Town Council on accessibility matters.  The committee has five to seven members, including one Town Councilor, with the majority of members being persons with disabilities. Members are chosen for their knowledge, experience and dedication to eliminating barriers and promoting universal accessibility. 

Responsibilities 

One of the committee's key responsibilities is the development of the Town's annual accessibility plan for Council approval. This plan focuses on identifying, removing and preventing barriers within the Town's goods, services, and facilities.

Additional committee responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing site plans and drawings for all public and private buildings in Milton to ensure they are accessible for persons with disabilities.
  • Organizing community events for National Access Awareness Week.
  • Reviewing corporate accessibility policies, procedures, and programs to ensure the Town is meeting its compliance obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. 
Meeting Schedule
The 2016 MAAC Meeting Schedule outlines the dates, times, and locations for the committee's meetings.  If you are interested in attending a meeting, contact the Accessibility Coordinator at 905-878-7252, ext. 2534 or by e-mail at least one week before the meeting.
