Accessibility

Our commitment to accessibility

CPCS fosters a diverse and inclusive workplace. Because we work with people around the world, we place a high priority on accessibility.

This accessibility plan outlines the policies and actions that CPCS has in place to improve opportunities for people with disabilities in accordance with the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, Canada (AODA).

We are headquartered in Ottawa, and our office is wheelchair accessible. Other offices are not wheelchair accessible, and we apologize for the inconvenience it may cause.

Statement of commitment

CPCS is committed to working towards providing a barrier-free environment in our Ontario-based offices for all stakeholders including our clients, customers, employees, job applicants, suppliers and any visitors who may enter our premises, access our information or use our services.

CPCS understands its responsibility for ensuring a safe, dignified and welcoming environment for everyone. We are committed to ensuring our organization’s compliance by including accessibility legislation into our policies, procedures, equipment requirements, training and best practices.

We review these policies and practices annually, as organizational changes occur or in anticipation of compliance deadlines. In addition, we strive to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities in a timely and effective manner.

Providing an accessible and barrier-free environment is a shared effort, and CPCS is committed to working with the necessary parties to make accessibility for all a reality.
