Dear Everybody Agreement

Last night at Council, we discussed a motion that I brought forward to sign the Dear Everybody Agreement – pledging the Town’s commitment to supporting people with disabilities and creating an inclusive space for everyone. The motion passed unanimously!!

I am extremely proud that Aurora is the first municipality to take this step forward and sign the Dear Everybody Agreement. This commitment emphasizes the importance of dissolving biases and barriers against individuals with disabilities in our community. Our partnership with Holland Bloorview is a testament to creating an inclusive and welcoming community for all individuals, irrespective of abilities so that every resident feels welcome in our Town.

The motion also directs all Town Departments to explore ways to implement the principles outlined in the Dear Everybody Agreement, specifically focusing on authentic representation in marketing, product/service development, inclusive hiring practices, and ensuring accessibility in municipal spaces, events, and offices. #LeadershipThatGetsthingsDone
