Today I have started with the Norfolk County Accessibility Advisory Committee (ACC). This committee gives advice to the County Council to help it carry out its responsibilities under the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act).
With the knowledge I’m gaining from my appointment to this committee I plan on being a Freelance Disability Consultant as well.
