Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

Statement of Commitment

Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We are committed to treating people with
disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence.

We are committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. This accessibility plan outlines the steps we are taking to meet those requirements and to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.

Past Achievements to Remove and Prevent Barriers

Catholic Christian Outreach strives to meet the needs of its employees and customers living with disabilities and is working to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility. As such, we have already made steps and implemented strategies to ensure we are providing equal accessibility for our employees and customers. Such achievements include developing digital versions of our materials, the development and implementation of accessible customer service policies, implementing training in Accessible Customer Service for all Ontario employees, as well as providing accessible hiring practices by notifying all applicants of our readiness to accommodate applicants with disabilities.

Strategies and Actions

Training

CCO’s Human Resources department will ensure that all Ontario employees continue to receive Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulations training in a timely fashion. Certifications from this training are documented and retained in CCO’s employee personnel files.

Customer Service

CCO is committed to conducting an annual review of its Accessible Customer Service Policy and this Multi-year Accessibility Plan. Over the next three years, CCO will also review its communications across the movement to ensure they meet accessibility standards. This will include proposing and implementing new strategies in order to ensure that we are ready to provide accessible formats of communication upon request, and that those communications are compatible with accessibility technologies.

Information and Communications

Catholic Christian Outreach is committed to meeting the communication needs of persons living with disabilities, and to providing its information and communications in an accessible format upon request.

CCO shall provide customers with the opportunity to provide feedback on the service provided to customers with disabilities. Information about the feedback process will be readily available to all customers and notice of the process will be made available in print form at CCO HQ or by email upon request. Feedback forms along with alternate methods of providing feedback such as verbally (in person or by telephone) or written (handwritten, delivered, website or email), will be available upon request.
