At The Michener Institute, we believe in promoting an inclusive environment and are committed to ensuring our programs, services and facilities are accessible.
As part of this commitment, we have established an Accessibility Committee to provide oversight and guidance in the implementation of accessibility initiatives and the fulfillment of all legislated accessibility requirements. The committee includes representatives from all areas of the organization and has been trained on legislative and best practices in accessibility for educational institutions.
In 2005, the Government of Ontario introduced the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to ensure all Ontarians have fair and equitable access to programs and services and to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities. The AODA covers the following areas:
- Built Environment
- Customer Service Standards
- Integrated Accessibility Standards (which includes the following)
The Customer Service Standard provides guidelines to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities when accessing services or participating in programs. Michener requires all employees to complete training on the AODA Customer Service Standard.
