City of Kingston – Accessibility

Kingston is a community that recognizes that people are its most valuable asset. We create opportunities for all people to enjoy our city and contribute as productive citizens. We will work to prevent and remove barriers for persons with disabilities on City properties and services. We will also create public awareness and educate both the public and private sectors regarding the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the Ontario Building Code, and the Ontario Human Rights Code.
