Grand River Accessibility Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is to eliminate barriers for people with disabilities.  Ontario municipalities with populations of 10,000 or more are required to set up accessibility advisory committees.  At least 50% of members are to be persons with disabilities.  This ensures that the people most affected by barriers in the community are involved in the identification, removal and prevention of those barriers.  In accordance with the AODA, the Councils of the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo, the Townships of North Dumfries, Wellesley, Wilmot, and Woolwich and the Region of Waterloo set up the Grand River Accessibility Advisory Committee (GRAAC) to provide advice on accessibility issues. 

GRAAC members are appointed by consensus of the area councils and each member serves for a 4-year term (two term maximum).  GRAAC currently meets on the fourth Thursday of each month 1:30 - 4:00 pm at the City of Kitchener office located at 200 King Street West in Kitchener.  Please review the Committee's terms of reference for additional information about purpose and membership.  The Terms of Reference is available at the Region of Waterloo.  Each member of GRAAC acts as an independent representative to GRAAC and does not represent the concerns of only one disability or group.
