Accessibility Advisory Committee


In September 2017, the Province of Nova Scotia created its Accessibility Act.  The Act requires municipalities to form an Accessibility Advisory Committee and to prepare an accessibility plan.  The East Hants Accessibility Advisory Committee was then formed.  The committee consulted with many stakeholders and the general public and has just completed the drafting an accessibility plan for East Hants – Accessible East Hants.  The plan was approved by Council at their meeting on May 26, 2021.

Accessible East Hants addresses accessibility related to municipal services, buildings and infrastructure.

If you have any further questions, please contact Rachel Gilbert, Manager of Planning by calling 902.883.6122 or by emailing

Please note:  we’re continually working towards becoming accessible to persons with a disability so there may be updates needed to the plan since the draft was prepared and before final adoption by Council.
