We are committed to training all required employees in Ontario’s accessibility laws and aspects of the Ontario Human Rights Code that relate to persons with disabilities as it relates to their specific roles.
Information and communications
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that consider their disability. When asked, we will provide information about our organization and its services, including public safety information, in accessible formats or with communication supports.
As part of our 2020 branding revamp, we plan to meet internationally-recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and AA website requirements in accordance with Ontario’s accessibility laws.
We will notify employees, potential hires and the public that accommodations can be made during the recruitment and hiring process and reflect this in our company policies.
We will notify employees that supports are available for those with disabilities. We will put in place a process to develop individual accommodation plans for employees when needed.
If needed, we will also provide customized emergency information to help an employee with a disability during an emergency.
Our performance management and career development processes will consider the accessibility needs of all employees and accommodate accessibility requests.
