Statement of Commitment
Stewart Title is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity. We are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner, and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility.
Stewart Title has developed a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan which, together with this Policy, will be posted on our website and reviewed every five years.
Accessible emergency information
We are committed to providing employees with disabilities with individualized emergency response information.
We will provide training to employees and other staff members on accessibility laws and on the Human Rights Code as it relates to people with disabilities. Training will be provided in a way that best suits the duties of employees and other staff members.
Information and communications
We are committed to meeting the communication needs of people with disabilities.
We offer persons with disabilities various options for providing feedback (and any communication that results from the feedback) including by phone, fax, email, in person, or by regular mail.
We provide accessible formats and communication supports for persons with disabilities, including, but not limited to CD-ROM, Braille, large print etc., in a timely manner that takes into account the person’s accessibility needs due to disability and at a cost that is no more than the regular cost charged to other persons.
We consult with the person making the request in determining the suitability of an alternative format or communication support.
Stewart Title is committed to inclusive and accessible employment practices that attract and allow us to retain talented employees. To achieve this, we accommodate people with disabilities both during recruitment and throughout their employment with Stewart Title.
Design of public spaces
We will meet the Accessibility Standards for the design of public spaces when building or making major modifications to the waiting areas of our Toronto office.
