Small Business Accessibility

Small Business Accessibility

Ontario’s 300,000+ small businesses welcome the People Access products and services providing:

  • Simplified compliance
  • Reduced time and effort, saving money
  • Fill-in-the-blank templates
  • Low-cost training
  • Expert guidance
  • Support network
  • Checklist
  • Disability confidence

Small Business has more face-to-face interactions with customers every day than any other sector and is a vital component to making Ontario accessible for people with disabilities. Whether you know them as customers, clients, tourists, guests, patients, students, or members, more than 15% of them have visible or invisible disabilities.

Whether you have 1 employee or 100’s, if you are doing business in Ontario you must obey the customer service accessibility law by creating a service policy and providing training to your managers and staff. Like many small businesses, you may not have had time to act on this, but People Access has. People Access has made the process of complying with Ontario’s new regulations easier and more affordable than ever.

First, we offer for purchase a Small Business AODA Compliance Kit in a size that fits your staff. It will satisfy the paperwork requirements and explain what you have to do, why, and by when. Then you can use the included training through our e-Learning program. Finally, you can show all your customers and neighbours that you support accessibility for people with disabilities with People Access door decals, guides, and service tips, along with a directory listing on an Accessible Organization Map so that people with disabilities can find you, refer you, and buy your goods and services.
