Riverside Health Care Accessibility Plan: 2019-2024
Riverside Health Care is committed to creating an inclusive environment and accessible care. Accommodating the needs of our patients, clients, residents, visitors and staff members is integral to delivering the highest quality of care possible.
We are continually working to make all our spaces more accessible, across the Rainy River District.The 2019-2024 Accessibility Plan is the second multi-year plan prepared by our Accessibility Committee with the goal of providing exceptional and accessible service to all, and removing all barriers to this opportunity. The Accessibility Plan is the foundation for this.
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was introduced in 2004, with the objective of the related standards that have been put in place intended to create a barrier-free and fully accessible Ontario by 2025. The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service required our organization to meet a number of requirements by January of 2010 that would ensure we were embedding the principles of accessibility in our interactions with our clients, residents, and patients. A set of Integrated Standards were introduced since that time which include regulations addressing information and communications, employment, and transportation. This multi-year plan describes when these requirements will be met, in addition to outlining our ongoing efforts to be as barrier-free as possible.
