Mayor Peckford's Statement for AccessAbility Week 2024

As we observe National AccessAbility Week from May 26 to June 1, 2024, it is a time for us to reflect on the importance of inclusion and accessibility within our community. This week serves as a reminder of the progress we’ve made in removing barriers and our ongoing commitment to ensuring that every member of our community can participate fully in all aspects of life.

My colleague and Co-Chair of the Accessibility Advisory Committee, Councillor Doreen O’Sullivan says “National AccessAbility Week is a week for Canadians to promote inclusion and accessibility in our community and celebrate the progress we’ve made to remove barriers. North Grenville is committed to ensuring everyone in our community has equal access to all of the services, supports, and programs that the municipality delivers.”

While we celebrate our achievements, we must also acknowledge that the journey towards full accessibility is continuous. The Accessibility Committee’s other Co-Chair, Lindsay Olmstead adds that “while the municipality has recently made some important accessibility improvements to our services and facilities, we recognize our commitment to providing accessible services requires periodic assessment, feedback, and improvements.”

In North Grenville, we are dedicated to continuing this important work towards fostering an inclusive environment where all individuals can thrive. Our efforts to enhance accessibility are not just about meeting standards but about embracing the diversity and richness that each person brings to our community. Together, we can build a more accessible future for everyone.

As Mayor, I extend my gratitude to all who have contributed to making our community more welcoming for people of all abilities. Your efforts are invaluable, and your dedication is inspiring. Let us continue to work together to create a North Grenville where everyone feels welcome, valued, and included.
