ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE PLAN
(Providing Service to People with Disabilities)
The Ontario government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) in 2005. It is the goal of the government of Ontario to make Ontario accessible by 2025. Christensen Law Firm is committed to complying with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and all of the standards under it in order to meet the accessibility needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner.
Christensen Law Firm will ensure that staff are trained and familiar with any assistive devices we have on site or that we may provide that can be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our site and services.
Christensen Law Firm will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
Christensen Law Firm welcomes people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
Any person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that support person accompany them onto Christensen Law Firm’s premises. There will be no fee associated with any support person accompanying a disabled person to our premise.
Notice of Temporary Disruption:
Christensen Law Firm does not anticipate any disruption to our services or our premises for customers with disabilities. Any disruption would be a result of a complete shutdown to the general public, at which point a notice of the facility shutdown would be posted on our main public entrance door as well as on our automated telephone answering service and on our website.
Christensen Law Firm will provide accessible customer service training to all employees, including senior management and those employees involved in the development of policies, plans, practices and procedures related to the provisions of our services.

- An overview of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the requirements of the customer service standard
