Ontario has an important law called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. It is the first of its kind in Canada.
People with disabilities should have the same kind of opportunities as everyone else. They should be able to do the things that most of us take for granted like going to work or school, shopping, taking in a movie or eating out at a restaurant.
That is the goal of Ontario's Legislation. Businesses and organizations who provide goods and services to people in Ontario will be required to meet certain accessibility standards in five important areas of our lives.
- Customer Service;
- Information and Communications;
- Built Environment; and
Accessible customer service can mean many things. Mostly, it is the understanding that each individual may need a different type of accommodation.
Accessible Customer Service follows four basic principles:
- Integration; and
- Equal Opportunity.
For example, a person who is blind may need to have information read aloud to them; an individual with a learning disability may need to have instructions written down; someone who uses a wheelchair may need help in finding a route they can use; and there may be customers that have difficulty reading or writing.
