ACCESSIBILITY POLICY

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (“the AODA”) is a Provincial Act with the purpose of developing, implementing and mandating accessibility standards in order to achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities, with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises. Under the AODA, Ontario Regulation 429/07, The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service came into effect on January 1, 2008 and the Integrated Standard came into effect on January 1, 2014. The Regulation establishes accessibility standards specific to customer service, information and communication, employment, design of public spaces and transportation for private sector organizations that provide goods and services to members of the public or other third parties.

At Gore Mutual, we have an accessibility policy in place to identify what the equal treatment provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code, through the AODA and the Regulation, require with respect to service delivery to persons with disabilities.
