Access Services

Accessibility cultivates inclusivity by eliminating barriers and creating social, physical and economic environments that enable all residents to participate actively in the community.

Inclusivity embraces and values diversity in age, culture, disability, gender, language, marital status, religion, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.

The Role of Access Services
Access Services, within the Parks & Community Services Division, includes support for people with disabilities, low income and people who are new to Canada who face cultural barriers.

Recreation for All
Community Services believes in building community programs and services that meet the needs of the community. Our recreation programs and facilities reflect our on-going pursuit to provide meaningful and inclusive opportunities for people with disabilities.

Program support for people with disabilities 
We encourage you to bring your own support to programs and services. Please let us know if you are registered for a program and plan to bring your own support by calling the Access Coordinator.

Family Provided Support
Families are always welcome to bring their own support person to any program. We are only able to provide support in our summer camps when we receive grants to hire summer students.

If you know or suspect that your children require additional support to participate in our activities, please let us know when you register by calling the Access Coordinator. This will help us plan for extra person and start a conversation with you about what we need to do to ensure that your child has a positive and memorable experience.
