Human rights are entrenched in law across Canada: The Canadian Human Rights Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms ensure equality of opportunity and freedom from discrimination across Canada. Ensuring the rights of persons with disabilities is gaining momentum across the country: In Ontario, legislation enforces accessibility standards (AODA 2005); while in Nova Scotia, work is underway to shape accessibility legislation that will make the province a more accessible and inclusive place to live. This policy explains how Closing the Gap Healthcare fulfils its commitment to provide a barrier-free environment for our clients, workers, and all other persons who enter our premises, or access our information or services.
