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 2017 to reduce obstacles to the integration of disabled people in its various sectors of activity. The plan is updated annually.
If you have questions or comments regarding accessibility for people with disabilities in the territory of Vaudreuil-Dorion, please call us at 450-455-3371 or fill out an online request.
The City offers an accompaniment service for physically or mentally disabled children who otherwise would not be able to attend day camp. The purpose of this program is not to replace special-needs camps but to enable disabled children to attend the Animation Jeunesse day camp.
Applications for this service must be submitted by the end of February each year. Applications received after that date will be rejected. By applying, you’re not officially signing up for the program but simply giving us an idea of the need for this service so that we can request funding. For more information or to make an appointment to fill out an application, please contact the Recreation and Culture Department at 450-455-3371, option 4.
