 StopGap Community Ramp Project

The StopGap Foundation is a registered charity that promotes the use of temporary ramps to allow access to commercial buildings where a step currently presents a barrier. This is done through Community Ramp Projects, which are volunteer-led initiatives bringing StopGap’s awareness raising messages to communities across Canada.

Lambton Shores' Council supports the implementation of the StopGap Community Ramp Project if a local organization(s) wishes to champion the project.

The following report and website link explains the program further.

Accessibility for web users

The Municipality of Lambton Shores will strive to ensure that its official municipal website and web content conform to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005, which calls for accessibility levels according to the World Wide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level A, at a minimum. To illustrate the municipality's commitment to a high level of website accessibility as quickly as possible, the website conforms to the WCAG 2.0 Level AA, well ahead of the January 1, 2021, date required by AODA regulations. Except where meeting this requirement is not practicable, this conformity applies to the website, web content and web-based applications that are controlled directly or through a contractual relationship that allows for the modification of the product and web content.

Accessible documents

We are committed to working towards achieving a fully accessible website. While we make every effort to keep website content accessible to all visitors there may be certain documents and information that are not currently available in an accessible format. Please contact the Administration department at 519-243-1400 extension 4 for assistance in obtaining an accessible document.

Accessibility committee

We strive to ensure that people of all ages and abilities enjoy the same opportunities while they live, work, visit, or play in our communities. We are working actively to provide increased accessibility in Lambton Shores through the prevention of new barriers and reduction and removal of existing barriers.
