CMHA WW strives at all times to provide services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities.
CMHA WW will make every reasonable effort to:
- Provide services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities.
- Give people with disabilities the same opportunity to access services and allow them to benefit from the same services in the same place and in a similar way as other persons supported unless an alternate measure is necessary to enable the person access to services.
- Communicate in a manner that takes into account the person’s disability, e.g. Use of an interpreter, sign language, communication board, information in a written format, etc.
