ACCESSIBILITY FOR ONTARIANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) became law on June 13, 2005. Under this landmark legislation, the government of Ontario has developed mandatory accessibility standards that identifies, removes, and prevents barriers for people with disabilities.
Women’s Health in Women’s Hand Community Health Centre is committed to ensuring all members of our community have equal access to the services we provide. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do this by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and by meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
Documents and policies under the AODA Customer Service Standard will be provided to a person with a disability in a mutually agreed upon format that takes into account the person's disability. This information will be provided as soon as practicable.
If any emergency procedures, plans or public safety information are made available to the public, they will be provided to a person with a disability in a mutually agreed upon format that takes into account the person's disability, as required by AODA Integrated Accessibility Standards. This information will be provided as soon as practicable.
Below is our current Accessibility Policy. As well, our current compliance report for 2017. Should you require copies of either of these documents or if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Women’s Health in Women’s Hand Community Health Centre has taken the following steps to respond to the needs of an accessible community:
- Accessible Customer Service training for all Centre employees, students, volunteers and contractors.
- A feedback process that allows persons with disabilities to provide input on how we have or have not met the needs of persons with disabilities
