People with Disabilities – Access and Inclusion Policy review
In May 2019 the City of Canning Council supported a motion to review its People with Disabilities – Access and Inclusion Policy, which was last revised in 2009. As part of the review the City expressed a desire to engage with people living within the local government area, specifically those living with a disability, through community consultations.
To ensure broad and transparent engagement with the Canning community, the City engaged Inclusion Solutions, an external third-party consultant, to support the City in its review. This was done via a number of strategies to encourage community engagement to ensure that final recommendations with regard to the policy would represent the Canning community.

As per the recommendation made in the Inclusion Solutions report the City of Canning will begin to co-design this new policy with the Canning Access and Inclusion Advisory Group, when is has been formed.
Canning Access and Inclusion Advisory Group
Nominations for the "Canning Access and Inclusion Advisory Group" have now closed.
The formation of our advisory group has somewhat been delayed due to COVID-19 and the subsequent government health guidelines, which have now been put in place. The team here at the City of Canning will continue to work on the formation of our group and we shall keep you updated on our progress.
