Tofino's Accessibility Committee
Do you have a desire to get involved in your community by contributing to Council’s decision-making processes and helping to shape municipal policy? If so, we encourage you to apply for a volunteer position on our advisory bodies. This year Council is introducing a brand-new Committee, devoted to accessibility:
The general purpose of the Committee is to provide advice and make recommendations to Council on matters related to accessibility within the municipal boundaries of the District of Tofino.
The Committee will develop an accessibility plan to identify and prevent barriers to people with disabilities and will also develop a public feedback mechanism which establishes a process for receiving comments from the public on the accessibility plan and local barriers.
One (1) completed electronic or hardcopy application must be received before 4:00 PM [PST] on October 6, 2023. Late submissions will not be considered.
The Committee must, to the extent possible, have members who are selected in accordance with the following goals:
- At least half of the members are persons with disabilities, or individuals who support, or are from organizations that support, persons with disabilities;
- Members reflect a diversity of persons with disabilities;
- At least one member is an Indigenous person; and
- Members reflect the diversity of persons in B.C.
This committee is seeking 4 community members. Applications are available online or from the District office, and are due Friday October 6, 2023 by online submission, mail, hand or e-mail to ac.onifot@secivresetaroproc
