Election Accessibility

The Town of Mono has made great efforts in promoting a barrier free community. In an effort to ensure that the 2018 Municipal Election is consistent with the core principle of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, a planning document has been developed in advance of the election to identify measures to be taken to support the accessibility of both voters and candidates. The complete plan can be found below:
