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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Accessibility education and training for all staff that will inform the development of policies, practices, and future program and building planning.
