The City of Canning is committed to facilitating the inclusion of people with disabilities through developing and improving access to services, facilities, programs and events.
In doing so, the City has developed its Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) to provide a focus on the services it provides and the relevant agents and contractors engaged to increase independence, opportunities and inclusion for people with disabilities within the local community.
The DAIP has seven main outcomes that aim to provide people with disability the same opportunities as others to access:
- buildings and other facilities
- staff assistance
- feedback and complaint mechanisms
- public consultation processes
- employment opportunities by the City of Canning.
Overall these strategies, though specifically aimed at addressing access for people with disability, also improve access for older people, families and those with temporary mobility related impairments.

The State Government has issued access guidelines and there are Australian standards on access.
