APPLEBY COLLEGE’S ACCESSIBILITY
STATEMENT OF COMMITMENT
Appleby College (the “College”) is committed to meeting the accessibility needs of people with disabilities–including students, employees and community members–in a timely manner. The College will continue to improve accessibility to persons with disabilities in its facilities, its policies and processes. The College will further these goals by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (the “AODA”). In that regard, the College has established this Accessibility Policy (the “Policy”) and an Accessibility Standards for Customer Service Policy to meet its obligations under Regulation 191/11, “Integrated Accessibility Standards” (the “Regulation”) under the AODA.
The College’s vision for accessibility is that people with disabilities, visible or invisible, are given the same opportunity as others to obtain and benefit from services offered by the College. The College’s goal is to make reasonable efforts to provide services in such a way that the key principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality of opportunity for persons with disabilities are respected.
The College welcomes and encourages all members of our community to collaborate and provide creative input in future initiatives for accessibility.
Appleby welcomes feedback, including feedback about the delivery of services to persons with disabilities. Any concerns or complaints regarding accessibility for persons with disabilities should be placed directly with the Payroll and Benefits Specialist in Human Resources. In the event that a complaint is made, Appleby will review the complaint with relevant personnel and school administration and provide a response within 10 business days.
Any person wishing to provide feedback to Appleby about the manner in which we provide service to people with disabilities may do so verbally (in person or by telephone) or written (handwritten, delivered, website, or e-mail).
Feedback may be submitted to the attention of: Payroll and Benefits Specialist
