Statement of Commitment
Perimeter Institute is committed to providing an environment that is accessible and inclusive to all persons who work, study or visit the Institute (including volunteers, patrons and third party contractors). The Institute will strive to ensure that its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the following core principles as outlined in the AODA:
- Dignity: Goods and services are provided in a manner that is respectful to persons with a disability and does not diminish the person's importance.
- Independence: Accommodating a person's disability means respecting their right to do for themselves and to choose the way they wish to receive goods and services.
- Integration: Persons with disabilities can access all goods and services. This may require alternative formats and flexible approaches. It means inclusiveness and full participation. This is a fundamental human right.
- Equal Opportunity: Service is provided to persons with disabilities in a way that their opportunity to access goods and services is equal to that given to others.
