AODA Compliance at the Scott Mission

The objective of this project is to develop the tools, policies, and protocols that will move The Scott Mission into a greater degree of AODA compliance. Considering the limited time frame available, the scope of the project will focus on the following three aspects:

  1. Development of an evacuation plan for TSM that will specifically outline protocols for the evacuation of individuals with mobility or other physical accessibility concerns. Having such a plan in place is important for TSM in welcoming individuals with disabilities while being compliant with local fire code.
  2. Recommendations for changes to the physical facilities to make TSM’s headquarters physically accessible, with a focus on creating an environment to allow for the equal hiring of staff and volunteers.
  3. Accessibility education and training for all staff that will inform the development of policies, practices, and future program and building planning.
