Indigo's Multi-Year Accessibility plan is designed to support the principles and requirements outlined in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 ("AODA"), and Ontario Regulation 191/11 - "Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation" ("IASR"). This Plan, which is to be read together with Indigo's Integrated Accessibility Standards Policy, outlines Indigo's strategy over the next 5 years to prevent and remove barriers to accessibility.
This Plan applies to Indigo's Ontario employees, volunteers, agents and/or contractors who deal with people on behalf of Indigo. Indigo will review and update this accessibility plan at least once every five (5) years, in consultation with persons with disabilities and an internal accessibility committee.
Indigo is committed to creating an inclusive culture across the organization by preventing and removing barriers for person with disabilities. Where it is not possible to remove barriers, Indigo will make efforts to accommodate persons with disabilities in a timely, effective and suitable manner.
Indigo supports the principles of accessibility legislation.
As a large, private sector organization, Indigo's goal is to ensure accessibility for our employees and our customers. At Indigo, it is our hope to add a little joy to each customer's day, whenever and however they interact with us. As such, our employees, volunteers, agents and/or contractors aim to provide, to the best of their abilities, the same Indigo experience to all customers, including people with disabilities. This plan is an integral part of Indigo's goal.
This plan, which is available on Indigo's website, will, upon request, be made available in various accessible formats.
