Residents Accessibility Plan
The purpose of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA) was to improve opportunities for people with disabilities and to provide for their involvement in the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to their full participation in life in the province. The ODA mandated that each municipality prepare an annual accessibility plan, with the Township of Terrace Bay’s plan available for viewing.

Increasing Website Text
The text on the Terrace Bay website can be increased by either 1) holding down the Ctrl key and moving the scroll wheel to zoom in and out of the page, or by 2) clicking on “View” in the toolbar at the top of the page and selecting “Zoom,” then adjusting the text size to fit your needs. These two methods are recommended instead of using the “Increasing Text Size” function, which would affect the website layout and look less appealing to visitors.
