Our Commitment 

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is committed to providing programs and services that meet the needs of everyone in our community. We will deliver on this commitment in a manner that respects the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity for all our clients.

Whenever possible, we will ensure that persons with disabilities benefit from the same services as other clients. This means services will be offered in the same place, at the same time, and in a similar way. There may be exceptions, however, when an alternative approach is required to create equal opportunity.

For more information, read our Accessible Client Service policy and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit's Multi-Year Plan to Achieve Compliance with the AODA Standards.

The policy outlines rights and obligations as they relate to:

  • The provision of services to persons with disabilities;
  • The use of assistive devices by persons with disabilities;
  • The use of service animals by persons with disabilities;
  • The use of support persons by persons with disabilities;
  • Notice of temporary disruptions in services and facilities;
  • Training;
  • Client feedback regarding the provision of services to persons with disabilities; and
  • Notice of availability and format of documents and meetings.

This policy is intended to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and all related standards and regulations introduced under this legislation.
