Let's update the accessibility plan!

The City is developing a new five-year road map to help make Peterborough more accessible and welcoming for everyone. The plan will outline priorities to identify, remove and prevent barriers, so everyone can participate in the community.

How can you help?

Let us know what is needed to make Peterborough more accessible. If you are a person with a disability who lives, visits, studies or works in the City of Peterborough, or you care or advocate for someone with a disability, we want to learn about your experiences. Your feedback will help set priorities and clear goals for the next five years of accessibility planning in Peterborough.

Moving in the right direction

Snapshot accessibility planning in Peterborough over the last 10 years:

  • 2012: Focused on compliance with accessibility laws in Ontario.
  • 2013: Thought about accessibility at the start of every process.
  • 2014 to 2015: Moved from “think” about accessibility to “think-research-consult” about accessibility.
  • 2016 to 2017: Used an accessibility lens on everyday business.
  • 2018 to 2022: Fully incorporated an accessibility lens into new and updated policies, strategic plans, programs, services, facilities and infrastructure.

Accommodations

The City recognizes some people may not be able to use various online public engagement features. Contact the project team for an accommodation to access engagement tools such as the map or survey. It's important to receive feedback from people of all abilities to help shape the accessibility plan. We're happy to help.

Thank you for helping us to better understand the experiences of people with disabilities.
