Nova Scotia enacted an Accessibility Act in 2017 to ensure that all persons with disabilities have equitable access to what they need. As part of the process of removing and preventing barriers, public sector bodies, which includes municipalities, are working towards local Accessibility Plans by the summer of 2021. Region of Queens Municipality hired an Accessibility Coordinator in July and appointed an Accessibility Advisory Committee in November, 2020.
