Accessibility Planning

Loyalist Township is working toward preventing and removing barriers for persons with disabilities in Loyalist Township facilities and for services provided.

Loyalist Township strives at all times to provide its goods and services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of all people. Loyalist Township is committed to giving people with disabilities the same opportunity to access our goods and services and allow them to benefit from the same services, in the same place and in a similar way as other customers.

As plans develop in this area, information will be provided here.

Any questions about information contained in this section of the website should be directed to Debbie Chapman, Municipal Clerk, at 613-386-7351, ext. 121 or by using the Feedback form (fill out the form in Acrobat Reader, then click on the button at the bottom of the form to email it to us).
