Accessibility at IDHC

As an organization, we respect and uphold the requirements set forth under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), Customer Service Standard, and the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation for Information and Communications, Employment, and Transportation, for the Built Environment and any future AODA associated standards and regulations.

The Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle (IDHC) believes accessibility is a right that everyone has and this right needs to be respected and honoured; we all benefit when everyone can participate equally in everyday life; although there has been much progress in making our society more inclusive, we can and need to do better.

Statement of Commitment

The IDHC is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity and understand that we have a responsibility for ensuring a safe, dignified, and welcoming environment for everyone.

The IDHC is committed to ensuring our organization’s AODA compliance by incorporating accessibility legislation into our policies, procedures, information, equipment requirements, training, and best practices. We will review these policies and practices annually, as organizational changes occur, or in anticipation of compliance deadlines. In addition, we will strive to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities in a timely and effective manner.

The IDHC is committed to providing an accessible and barrier-free environment for those that access our information, programs or services. As an organization we understand this is a shared effort, and, we are committed to working with the necessary parties to make accessibility a reality for all.
