Thunder Bay's Accessibility Plan identifies the barriers that we've removed in the past and the barriers that we're working towards removing in the future.

We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions, would like a hard copy of these documents, or if you'd like to report a concern you have faced in your community. The Plan is made possible with the input of our Accessibility Advisory Committee and our community.
