We are committed to meeting the accessibility needs of people with disabilities in a manner that is consistent with the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equal opportunity.

  • Customer Service
  • Information and communication
  • Design of Public Spaces
  • Employment
  • Multi-year accessibility plan
  • Our multi-year accessibility plan outlines what we are doing to meet the accessibility requirements of the AODA.

The notice will be posted on our website and will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated duration and a description of alternative services if available.
