Accessibility

Committed to Providing Accessible Services

At Ontario Northland, our goal is to provide access to all our services to all people through:

  • the development and improvement of accessible public transportation and communication services;
  • ensuring our facilities are barrier free;
  • providing barrier free employment and employment opportunities; and
  • establishing a culture in which persons with disabilities are addressed as quickly and routinely as all customers.

Ontario Northland has compiled a comprehensive Accessibility Plan and Customer Service Policy to improve access and opportunities for people with disabilities. We have developed a thorough Feedback Process which provides for those with or families of one with a disability to be encouraged to identify, remove and prevent barriers so they can fully take part in life.
