1.2 Executive Summary

The Accessibility Canada Act (ACA) came into effect in July 2019. The objective of ACA is “Nothing without us” and it recognizes that persons with disabilities are equal participants in all areas of life. The resulting Accessible Canada Act is a landmark federal legislation that aims to realize a barrier-free Canada by 2040. In order to achieve this goal, each federally regulated entity, including eSeeLYNX, is required to prepare and publish an accessibility plan (hereinafter referred to as “the eSeeLYNX Accessibility Plan”) by June 1, 2024.

eSeeLYNX Accessibility Plan reflects our objectives and obligations as both a federally regulated company and a telecommunication provider. As such, we are subject to two regulations: the ACA and Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) Accessibility Reporting Regulations.

In line with our commitment to accessibility and inclusion, this 3-year Accessibility Plan outlines how we identify, prevent, and remove barriers in the areas described in Section 5 of the ACA for persons with disabilities.

2. Feedback Process

Feedback process is a key contributor to help us identify, remove, and prevent barriers to accessibility. The process refines and improves on how we consult persons with disabilities in preparing our plans and progress reports. It also ensures that the planning and reporting documents we publish are accessible, informative and written in language that is simple, clear and concise.

eSeeLYNX is committed to creating an open and transparent feedback process for not only employees, but also our customers. Any individual can use any of the means listed below to contact eSeeLYNX to provide feedback on accessibility. Individuals can provide feedback anonymously. Anonymous feedback can allow certain contributors to provide feedback without fear of possible repercussions for doing so, such as employees, including those with disabilities, who have concerns about privacy or individuals belonging to equity-seeking groups who are more likely to experience certain kinds of barriers.

Upon the receipt of feedback, Accessibility Support Officer will acknowledge the receipt of all non-anonymous feedback by the same means in which we receive it within 7 working days. We will contact and follow up with the feedback provider.

eSeeLYNX will ensure all feedback is organized, analyzed, shared with the relevant teams in the organization for their consideration, preserved and used to prevent and remove barriers in a timely manner. eSeeLYNX keeps electronic or print copies of all feedback for at least 7 years from the day on which we receive it.

These communication channels can also be used to request for a copy of our Accessibility Plan or Feedback Process in alternate formats. Within 15 days of a request, a print, large print and electronic format that is compatible with adaptive technology will be provided. Braille and audio format will be submitted within 45 days of a request.

The development and implementation of the Accessibility Plan for 2024–2027 falls on each and every employee at eSeeLYNX. Our Accessibility Plan representative will take responsibilities and expectations over the course of the next three years.

3. Consultations

The experiences of people with disabilities propelled and guided the development of this plan from the beginning. We are committed to consulting people with disabilities internally and externally.

Internal

External

4. Pillars and Actions

4.2 Built Environment

eSeeLYNX is dedicated to ensuring an accessible built environment for all employees and visitors. We understand the importance of creating a fully accessible environment and continue to prioritize accessibility in all facets of our operations.

Following an audit by a client from RCD, we identified barriers in our physical spaces and are actively working to address and prevent these obstacles. Our efforts focus on making our workplace accessible for visitors and guests who come for inquiries, meetings, and interviews. Key areas of concern include entrances, wayfinding, and amenity spaces such as office equipment areas and meeting rooms, where accessibility barriers are most commonly found.

We invited a client with a disability from RCD to audit our office. Based on their feedback, here are some areas where we can further improve our workplace accessibility:

Moving forward, we will continue to prioritize accessibility and inclusivity in all aspects of our operations, striving to remove any remaining barriers that prevent individuals with disabilities from fully participating in our services and facilities.
