In May 1999 Calgary City Council approved the establishment of the Advisory Committee on Accessibility (ACA) as part of the Transportation Services for People with Disabilities Review.

The primary purpose of the committee is to focus on broad policy issues and advise City Council on accessibility issues related to municipal properties, information and services. The ACA committee is composed of representatives from the community, as well as appointed City administration staff. There are two sub-committees of ACA. The first, Access Design Sub-Committee, reviews and make recommendations on issues that relate to accessibility for people with disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to, the review of major public and private projects (e.g., properties, buildings, barrier-free walking ways, accessible play spaces, pathways and parks) to ensure the greatest level of accessibility for persons with physical, sensory and cognitive disabilities. The second, Transportation Services for People with Disabilities Sub-Committee, reviews and makes recommendations on transportation services for people with disabilities.
The Advisory Committee on Accessibility and the two sub-committees each meet once a month. We encourage individuals and organizations to bring disability issues forward to Calgary City Council through the Advisory Committee on Accessibility.
