Customer Service Plan Providing Services to People with Disabilities
Diversified Communications Canada is committed to excellence in serving all customers, including people with disabilities.
30 Day Advance Notice Request Deadline
Diversified Communications Canada is committed to meeting your onsite disability needs as per the Accessibility for Ontarians Act, 2005. However, all requests MUST be made no later than 30 days in advance of any event so that we have sufficient and reasonable time to coordinate your needs.
All persons with disabilities MUST declare themselves upon arrival at any of our events to the Information Booth or the Registration Counters. Staff will then provide an individualized plan that accommodates your disability that will:
• Identify potential hazards
• Coordinate procedures of what to do in the event of an emergency
We ask that you bring your own personal assistive device. The facilities we rent for our events do not have onsite assistive devices to use by the general public.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that consider their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of premises we rent for our events that are open to the public.
Support Persons Admission Fee
Please contact us if you are accompanied by a Support Person for their event admission fee. Support Persons will be charged a reasonable fee to cover Food & Beverage costs incurred (generally this ranges from $80 – $150 per day per person depending on the event and facility).
Notice of Temporary Disruption
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for event delegates with disabilities, Diversified Communications Canada will notify registered attendees promptly. This will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated duration, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
