Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Policy
Providing Services to People with Disabilities
Ontario Colonoscopy Clinics is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.
We will ensure our staff is trained and familiar with various assistive devices we have on site, or that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.

In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services at our facilities for customers with disabilities, Ontario Colonoscopy Clinics will notify customers promptly.
