ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE POLICY
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) in Ontario is working toward making the province accessible for people with disabilities by 2025.
Under this Act, Ontario has developed accessibility standards to meet their goal. The first accessibility standard, The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service came into affect for non-profit and small businesses as of January 1st, 2012. This standard states what organizations in Ontario must do to make their goods and services more accessible to people with disabilities.
Community Living – Fort Erie (CLFE) is committed to providing quality goods and services that are accessible to everyone. We believe in fostering an inclusive community by identifying and removing barriers faced by persons with disabilities. Therefore, CLFE has approved the implementation of the agency’s ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE POLICY. This policy ensures that our goods and services are consistent with the four principles that respects:
Equal opportunity for all people
