Accessibility Commitment Statement
We believe that all Canadians deserve access to financial services, and we’re committed to providing accessible services that meet the needs of our Clients. We strive to continually eliminate barriers and improve our offering to Clients, employees and the public in order to deliver equally empowering experiences to all, regardless of their accessibility needs.
We’re committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equitable opportunity and are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements. We’re continually striving to improve the accessibility of our products and services, and welcome any questions or feedback you might have.
We’re working to enhance our website design so that it’s accessible to the widest possible audience, providing equal access to information, navigation and functionality. We’re actively working towards achieving an accessible website that will conform to the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and is usable with assistive technology.
Our Accessibility Policy
We’ve adopted the standards of the Accessibility of Ontarian’s with Disabilities Act (AODA), and have developed plans for implementing these standards across the offices and business lines operating in Canada. Our Accessibility Policy outlines what we’ll continue to do to remove and prevent accessibility barriers in our organization for both Clients and employees. You can read our Accessibility Policy here.
