South Wellington Coin Society

Accessibility Multi-Year Plan

The not-for-profit South Wellington Coin Society is committed to providing a barrier-free environment for our members, visitors, and other stakeholders who attend our meetings, education and display mall days, and our numismatic shows. As a volunteer society, we respect and uphold the requirements set forth under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), Customer Service Standard, and the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation for Information and Communications, Employment, and Transportation, and eventually, for the Built Environment.

Our Multi-Year Accessibility Plan outlines our approach to establish accessibility for persons with disabilities.

2. Training
