Guidelines for Providing Customer Service
By law, anyone who interacts with students, alumni, visitors, retirees, other organizations, or other members of the public is required to know and follow the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service (Ont. Reg. 429/07) as part of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
We are required to communicate with persons with disabilities in a manner that takes their disability into account, and make reasonable efforts to align our practices with four principles of accessible service:
Ability to maintain self-respect and the respect of others
Ability to do things without unnecessary help
Ability to benefit from the same services, in the same place, and in the same or similar ways as others
Ability to have the same opportunity as others, and to benefit from the goods and services offered
We are Committed
