Multi-Year Accessibility Plan
Enedym has developed and will maintain a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan (“Accessibility Plan”) that sets out the Enedym’s strategy for preventing and removing accessibility barriers from its workplace. The Accessibility Plan will be reviewed and updated at least once every five years.
The Transportation Standard, Design of Public Spaces and Built Environment Standard do not pertain to the Enedym at this time. Should this change in the future, Enedym will ensure it meets the requirements of these standards.
Upon request, the Enedym will provide a copy of the plan in an alternative accessible format. Please contact the Administrative Manager using the contact information noted below.
Recruitment and Career Development
Enedym will advise employees and the public about the availability of accommodation for applicants with disabilities.
Enedym will notify job applicants, when they are individually selected to participate further in an assessment or selection process that accommodations are available upon request in relation to the materials or processes to be used. If a selected job applicant requests accommodation relating to their participation in the hiring process, Enedym will consult with the individual and provide or arrange for the provision of suitable accommodation that takes into account the applicant’s disability-related needs.
When making offers of employment, Enedym will notify successful applicants of our policies for accommodating employees with disabilities.
Enedym will ensure that the accessibility needs of employees with disabilities as well as individual accommodation plans are taken into account if Enedym is using performance management and career development processes.
Enedym will provide training to all its employees and volunteers. Anyone who participates in developing the company’s policies, will also be trained on AODA and on the Ontario Human Rights Code as it relates to people with disabilities. Training will also be included as part of orientation for all new hires. The training provided will take into consideration and be appropriate to the duties of those receiving the training.
Records of the training provided will be maintained and will include: (i) the dates on which training was provided and (ii) the details of individuals to whom training was provided.
Accommodation Policy and Plans
Enedym has developed a written policy detailing the process of accommodation related to disabilities and return to work after a period of absence due to a disability. This policy also includes the process for the development of individual accommodation plans for employees with disabilities. If requested, information regarding accessible formats and communication supports provided will also be included in individual accommodation plans. Additionally, the plans will include individualized workplace emergency response information (where required and in accordance with the Workplace Emergency Response Information Standard).
