People with Disabilities

The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion wants to make all aspects of life easier for people with disabilities. To this end, it implements accessibility measures while remaining within administrative, organizational and financial limits.

Action Plan for People with Disabilities

Under Section 6.1.1 of the Act to Secure Handicapped Persons in the Exercise of Their Rights with a View to Achieving Social, School and Workplace Integration, all government departments, most public-sector organizations, and municipalities with a population of more than 15,000 must produce, adopt and annually publish an action plan for people with disabilities. 

The City's action plan sets out the measures it will implement in 2020 to reduce obstacles to the integration of disabled people in its various sectors of activity. The plan is updated annually.
