Municipal Advisory Committee on Accessibility and Inclusiveness
About the Committee
The Municipal Advisory Committee on Accessibility and Inclusiveness (MACAI) advises Council on the enhancement of accessibility and inclusivity for present and future citizens. 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.
MACAI typically meets on the third Thursday every second month at 4:00 pm in the Blaney Room, Maple Ridge City Hall.
