Treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity, freedom, and independence is an important part of MedicAlert Foundation Canada’s philosophy. We are committed to ensuring that our services and programs are accessible to all Canadians, including persons with disabilities. Inclusiveness is one of our organizational values, and promotion of integration and equity is reflected in all our activities. Our commitment to accessibility extends beyond the four walls of our organization and into the community, manifested through partnering with organizations who also work to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
MedicAlert will continuously work to meet accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), identify, prevent, and remove barriers, and provide fair and effective accommodation for persons with disabilities.
MedicAlert will provide training to employees, volunteers, and others who deal with the public or other third parties on our behalf.
