Creating an Accessible Workplace
Providing Access to Goods and Services to People with Disabilities Statement of Commitment
As an organization, we are committed to understanding and complying with legislative requirements as they relate to customers, our business and our employees.
To ensure compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), we have implemented policies and procedures to ensure that we treat all customers and employees with dignity and respect. We are dedicated to ensuring a safe, accessible environment for our customers, employees, suppliers, job applicants, visitors, and all others who enter the premises, do business with us, access our company website or communicate with us. We are also committed to giving people with disabilities the same opportunity to access our goods and services in the same place and in a similar way as other customers, and to accommodate applicants and employees to ensure equal access to employment opportunities.
We are fully aware of, and working proactively towards meeting the requirement to be in compliance with the Integrated Accessibility Standards under the AODA legislation for Customer Service, Employment and Information and Communication, with deadlines up to 2021. This includes having written policies and procedures available to all customers, offering feedback processes for customers to share their experiences with us, providing training to employees and completing annual compliance reports.
Access to Academic Materials
Everyone needs to be able to learn, and Thomson Reuters supports learning by supplying PDF files directly to schools upon request. Electronic PDFs of course-required publications allow students with perceptual disabilities to manipulate features of the documents to suit their own individual needs. Schools, colleges, and universities can use these documents in conjunction with specially designed software to create specially formatted copies and sound recordings.
To request PDF copies of our titles, please read the Accessibility Policy on the Thomson Reuters Canada Desk Copy site at deskcopy.thomsonreuters.ca/.
