Accessibility

The City of Greater Sudbury is working towards making its facilities, programs and services accessible to all citizens. We have made a number of improvements to the accessibility of our municipality over the past several years, including:

  • working with staff to identify strategic pillars and barriers to accessibility within the municipality;
  • a new accessible washroom at the Sudbury Community Arena;
  • installing fully accessible play structures and working to improve waterfront and shoreline access to community lakes;
  • development of the Multi-Year Strategic Accessibility Plan.

National AccessAbility Week May 26 to June 1, 2019

National AccessAbility Week is a week for Canadians to promote inclusion and accessibility in our communities and workplaces, to celebrate our progress and to be inspired to further breakdown accessibility barriers.
