Municipal Advisory Committee on Accessbility

Members


The Committee includes up to five local residents, eight representatives from government and community agencies, and representatives of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Councils. 

About the Committee


The Municipal Advisory Committee on Accessibility Issues (MACAI) advises Council on civic matters which affect people with disabilities. MACAI strives to remove the social, physical and psychological barriers that prevent people from fully participating in all aspects of community life. The committee's focus is to create equal access in the areas of employment, education, housing, transportation and recreation. Projects include sensitivity training for municipal staff and residents to create a greater awareness regarding accessibility issues, public facility design consultations and an annual award program.

Accessibility Awards


On June 15, 2017 MACAI hosted the 14th Annual Accessibility and Inclusion Awards for appreciation and recognition of all outstanding examples of accessibility.
