Accessibility Advisory Committee

Accessible Customer Service

The County of Prince Edward is committed to providing accessible service for its customers. Goods and services will be provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of all customers. The provision of services to persons with disabilities will be integrated into standard operating customer services procedures wherever possible. Persons with disabilities will be given opportunities equal to those given to others to obtain, use, or benefit from the goods and services provided by and on behalf of the Municipality. Council endorsed policy and procedures in March 2010 and these documents are available by the links below.
