MULTI-YEAR ACCESSIBILITY PLAN

Introduction

In order to prevent and remove barriers to accessibility, BFL maintains a multi-year accessibility plan which highlights both accomplishments and areas for continuous review and enhancement.

 

Statement of Commitment

BFL is committed to accessibility by identifying, removing and preventing barriers to promote the rights of all individuals and to build and create an inclusive and accessible working environment in accordance with the provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code (the "Code") and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (the "AODA").

BFL supports the intent of the AODA and its goal of achieving accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to Customer Service, Information and Communications, and Employment.

BFL is committed to ensuring accessibility for all staff and clients with disabilities by identifying, removing and preventing barriers that might interfere with their ability to obtain services provided by BFL. We strive to provide client services in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of individuals with disabilities, providing them with the same opportunities as anyone else.

BFL strives to ensure that all of our staff and clients receive equitable treatment with respect to employment and services, without discrimination; and receive accommodation where required.

 

BFL's Strategic Road Map

BFL’s multi-year accessibility plan documents our approach by outlining the actions that BFL has taken and will continue to take to improve opportunities for all. The multi-year plan and applicable policies apply to all individuals entitled to the protections set out in the AODA and its Regulations. The multi-year plan is a fluid document and will be reviewed at least once every five years as part of our commitment to accessibility.
