Accessible Customer Service Plan
We ensure that our staff is trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by clients with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We communicate with people in ways that take their disability into account.
We highly welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed in all areas of the premises that clients are.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have the person accompany them on our premises. Fees will not be charged for support persons.
