SJHC / About Us/ Accessibility

Accessibility

St. Joseph's Home Care (SJHC) is committed to providing a respectful, accessible, and inclusive environment for all of our clients, residents, employees, and visitors. We are dedicated to meeting the standards outlined in the province’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

The goal of the AODA is to develop a fully accessible Ontario by the year 2025. In order to reach this goal, five standards are being developed in the areas of Customer Service, Employment, Information and Communication, Built Environment, and Transportation. Guided by the vision of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, our respect for human dignity and the core principles of this act, our goal is to progressively work toward the elimination of barriers to access to the goods, services, and employment opportunities provided by St. Joseph’s Home Care.

The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation, 2011 (IASR) requires that organizations "establish, implement, maintain, and document a multi-year accessibility plan, which outlines the organization's strategy to prevent and remove barriers and meet its requirements under this regulation."
