Introduction and Statement of Commitment
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (“AODA”) was enacted in 2005. It is a multi-year plan by the Ontario government to make the province’s workplaces fully accessible for person with disabilities by the year 2025. It is considered ground-breaking legislation, so people with disabilities have more opportunities to participate in everyday life.
The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service (CSS) was the first standard introduced as part of the AODA and became law in 2008. The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) establishes regulations requiring barrier-free accessibility standards for persons with disabilities.
In accordance with the IASR, LifeLearn has created a multi-year accessibility plan that outlines the strategy that will be used to remove and prevent barriers within the workplace. LifeLearn is committed to review the plan at least every five (5) years, unless an earlier review is required by applicable legislation.
LifeLearn is committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and meeting our accessibility requirements under the AODA. LifeLearn believes in integration and we are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner.
This policy and all supporting resources apply to all employees, students, volunteers and other third parties who provide goods and services on behalf of the organization.
LifeLearn will continue to adhere to the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service Plan which is posted on the company website. We will file compliance reports every three years, or as required by applicable legislation.
