Accessible Customer Service Plan

Statement of Principles 

This plan is intended to meet the requirements of Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, Ontario Regulation 429/07 under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, and applies to the provision of goods and services to the public or other third parties. Kinectrics Inc. is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities. All goods and services provided by Kinectrics Inc. or any of its subsidiary companies shall follow the principles of dignity, independence, integration, and equal opportunity with respect to customers with disabilities.

Assistive Devices 

Kinectrics will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services. 

Communication 

Kinectrics ensures that all communication with people with disabilities is completed in a way that is considerate of their disability. 

Service Animals 

Kinectrics welcomes people with a disability that are accompanied by a service animal. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public, unless otherwise excluded by law from the premises. If a service animal is excluded by law from the premises, Kinectrics will ensure that other measures are available to ensure that the person with the disability is able to use our good or services.

Support Persons 

A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises and will not be prevented from having access to the support person while on the premises. If payment is required by a support person for admission to the premises, Kinectrics Inc. will ensure that notice is given in advance by posting notice of admission fees for support persons where Kinectrics Inc. fees are posted. 

Notice of Temporary Disruption

In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities that customers with disabilities require (elevators, ramps, accessible washrooms etc.), Kinectrics will notify customers promptly. The notice of disruption will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available. The notice will be placed at the point of disruption, at the main entrance and the nearest accessible entrance to the service disruption and/or on the Kinectrics Inc. website 

Training for Staff 

Kinectrics will provide training regarding the provision of its goods and services to people with disabilities to: 
a) employees, volunteers, agents and/or contractors who deal with the public or other third parties that act on their behalf for example: salespersons, drivers, vendors, event operators, and third-party marketing agents; and,
b) those who are involved in the development and approval of customer service policies, practices and procedures. 

This training will be provided to new employees during orientation, and will include: 

• An overview of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the requirements of the customer service standard. 
• Kinectrics’ plan related to the customer service standard. 
• How to interact and communicate with people with various types of disabilities. 
• How to interact with people with disabilities who use an assistive device or require the assistance of a service animal or a support person
• How to use the equipment or devices that are available at our premises or that we provide that may help people with disabilities. 
• What to do if a person with a disability is having difficulty in accessing goods and services at Kinectrics 

Staff will also be trained when changes are made to policies or procedures regarding the provision of goods or services to individuals with disabilities.

Kinectrics 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 by written communication, e-mail or website notification.
