This multi-year Accessibility Plan is developed in accordance with the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. The Plan describes the measures that Agility PR Solutions will take over the five year period from 2012-2017 to identify, remove and prevent barriers to people with disabilities who work, learn and participate within Agility PR Solutions environment including staff, volunteers and visitors.
Statement of Commitment
Agility PR Solutions is committed to providing services that are free of barriers and biases. Agility PR Solutions strives to ensure that key principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality of opportunity are reflected and valued in our working environments. Our conduct will demonstrate our belief in the strength that diversity brings to our communities. It is the policy of Agility PR Solutions to provide an environment in all of its facilities that fosters independence, dignity and respect for everyone. We are committed to ensuring that people with disabilities have the same opportunity of access to our services in a similar way as these services are available to all others we serve. We are committed to meeting the accessibility needs of people with disabilities, in a timely manner, in the provision of services related to information, communication, employment, and in the accessibility to our facilities.
Barriers to be addressed under the Plan
Agility PR Solutions intends, through this multi-year Accessibility Plan for the period 2012-2017, to take action to address barriers to accessibility related to the Standards areas of current Regulations.
Review and Monitoring
Each year, the Human Resources department will review progress and evaluate the effectiveness of implementation of barrier-removal and prevention strategies and will work closely with other departments to plan for increased accessibility throughout Agility PR Solutions.
