Introduction and Purpose
The Ontario government has passed legislation known as the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).
The AODA requires organizations in the public and private sectors of the Province of Ontario to meet certain accessibility standards with respect to the products, services, employment opportunities and facilities that they offer to members of the public.
The AODA objectives are:
- To enable persons with disabilities to benefit from these products, services, employment opportunities and facilities in the same way as other members of the public and
- To involve persons with disabilities in the development of accessibility standards.
To date, the Ontario government has passed Regulation 191/11: Integrated Accessibility Standards (the Regulation), which sets out the accessibility standards to be adopted under the AODA.
The customer service requirements of the standards, set out in the Regulation, have been implemented by means of our Accessible Customer Service Policy.
The Company is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We are committed to meeting the needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner in accordance with the provisions of the Company’s policies and the AODA.
Our ultimate goal is to meet and exceed customer expectations when serving customers with disabilities.
