The Township of South Stormont is committed to providing accessible and inclusive services and facilities to all people, including people with disabilities. Like other municipalities in Ontario, an Accessibility Plan is prepared to address any issues and barriers preventing persons with disabilities from participating fully in the life of the community. Ultimately, the Accessibility Plan is intended to identify, remove and prevent all barriers that may impede residents and visitors from accessing and using municipal services within the responsibility of the Township of South Stormont.

Feedback and Alternative Formats
The Township of South Stormont is proud of our Accessible Customer Service practices which are based on four basic principles:
- Dignity – service is provided in a way that allows the person with a disability to maintain self-respect and the respect of other people.
- Independence – when a person with a disability is allowed to do things on their own without unnecessary help or interference from others.
- Integration – service is provided in a way that allows the person with a disability to benefit from the same services, in the same place, and in the same or similar way as other customers, unless an alternative measure is necessary to enable a person with a disability to access goods or services.
- Equal Opportunity – service is provided to a person with a disability in such a way that they have an opportunity to access goods or services equal to that given to others.
Feedback from customers gives the Township of South Stormont the opportunity to learn and improve. The Township encourages individuals to make suggestions on ways to improve our services, and recognizes the right of customers to make a complaint.
