People with disabilities have a right to inclusive and equitable access to services, facilities, housing, and employment.
Whether you’re a business operator, an educational institution, a housing provider, or another type of service provider, BC’s human rights laws require you to make your services accessible to people with disabilities. In this workshop, you’ll learn some of the basics of BC’s Human Rights Code and your duty to accommodate people with disabilities. Topics covered include:
– When does the duty to accommodate arise?
– Accommodation requests and how to respond
– Strategies for accommodation
– Entitlement to medical information
– Invisible disabilities and the duty to inquire
– Accommodation to the point of “undue hardship”
