Call for Volunteers: Regional Accessibility Committee


Want to make a difference in your community and in your region? Here's your chance!

Volunteer for the Regional Accessibility Committee

The Districts of Elkford and Sparwood are collaborating to form a Regional Accessibility Committee (the “Committee”), with the purpose of helping to identify and remove physical and social barriers within our organizations and communities. The Committee will work together with staff and elected leaders to develop accessibility plans, provide a forum for discussion of accessibility-related issues and to raise awareness about accessibility in Elkford and Sparwood. If you are interested in helping to improve accessibility in your community, as well as the region, we would love your help and insights!

The Committee has a total of six (6) seats to be filled. Under Provincial legislation, to the extent possible, at least half of the Committee will include members from the community at large who are persons with disabilities, or individuals who support, or are from organizations that support, persons with disabilities and Indigenous persons. Volunteer application forms, and the Terms of Reference, are available at the municipal offices for the District of Elkford and District of Sparwood and on each municipality’s website.
