The Accessibility Advisory Committee provides advice to municipal council on identifying, preventing, and eliminating barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities. The committee plays a pivotal role in helping the Municipality of Pictou County to become an accessible community that complies with Nova Scotia’s Accessibility Act (2017).
At least one half of the members of the advisory committee must have a disability or represent an organization that represents people with disabilities.
Disability includes a physical, mental, intellectual, learning, or sensory impairment— including an episodic disability—that, in interaction with a barrier, hinders an individual’s full and effective participation in society.
To apply please submit a letter of interest to email@example.com. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2021. Letters of interest may also be sent to Municipality of the County of Pictou, PO Box 910, Pictou, Nova Scotia B0K 1H0.
