Policy brief & purpose
Our accessibility policy outlines our provisions for people with disabilities. We want to make our premises, services, products and equipment available to all people respecting their individual needs, dignity, independence and equal opportunity.
This policy applies to students, all prospective or current employees, as well as contractors and visitors.
We have taken actions to ensure that people with disabilities will be able to move about safely and easily and make full use of our facilities.
Disabilities that this policy refers to include but are not limited to:
~ Conditions that require the use of wheelchair or other movement support device or mechanism
~ Physical impairments that obstruct everyday activities (e.g. opening doors, walking up the stairs, reading signs etc.)
~ Visual, hearing, speech or mental impediment
~ Conditions that require assistance or constant medical care
Other conditions are subject to the school’s judgement and will be considered individually. We have several provisions for people with disabilities including:
~ Implemented accessible formats in our everyday communication.
~ Placed ramps at specific spots to facilitate the movements of wheelchairs.
~ Reserved parking spots for people with disabilities, installed elevators and have handicapped bathroom facilities.
We allow assistive devices, service animals and support persons to be in our premises for as long as their services are needed except in areas where animals are prohibited either by law or because of school policy (e.g. in the kitchen).
We encourage anyone who encounters any problems, malfunctions or deficiencies to report them to their immediate supervisor or HR.
