Collingwood’s Commitment to Accessibility

The Town of Collingwood is committed to providing all people with consistent opportunity and access to all Town goods, services and facilities while ensuring that policies, procedures and practices are provided in a timely manner and address integration, independence, dignity and equal opportunity.

We all benefit from Accessibility

Our Town recognizes that accessibility is essential to build on our unique profile as a major tourist destination, a retirement community and a community that attracts businesses. Many of our businesses recognize that accessibility can strengthen their bottom line, and grow their client base. Many of our leisure activities include people with varying abilities. Our residents told us during Access Awareness week in late May, 2015, that accessibility represents freedom, equality, independence and community to them.
