At People Access, we are dedicated to raising awareness about accessibility regulations: the benefits, rewards, risks, and opportunities to become an industry role-model and lead the competition in attracting and better serving more than 4.4 million Canadians that have a disability.
Many employers are unsure how Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) affects their business, buildings, tenants, customers and staff.
As a non-profit, Excellence Canada has been helping organizations across the country for over 20 years to improve performance and results. For over three years, its People Access division has been helping organizations to understand and implement the Ontario AODA regulations as part of a strategy to improve the bottom line.
It begins with a conversation to answer your concerns about what accessibility means to you, what you need to do, and when to get it done by. Availability is limited so call now and ask Karine to set up a phone meeting. 1-800-263-9648 x242
Areas affected in your business include policies, procedures, websites, training, customer service, HR practices, built environment, and transportation. Many organizations can take care of compliance with internal staff, but some want expert coaching or training to make it easier.
