Standards will be developed in the future for Building Environments.
Standards in each area are unique and legislated “Regulations” specify the elements that organizations must comply with in order to make goods and services equally accessible to those with and without disabilities.
Sunbeam Community & Developmental Services, and all of its satellite Departments, are committed to ensuring that its services and supports to individuals, and access to such services; their environments; their employment practices; and their information/communication strategies follow legislative requirements. This commitment is supported by an organizational Strategic Plan and Policies and Procedures. These formal documents include organizational Vision and Mission Statements, Core Values and Service Principles which collectively recognize the dignity, independence, equality of opportunity, and right to integration into the community, of all citizens who approach us.
A Multi-Year Accessibility Plan has been developed to identify timelines for the creation/implementation of Provincial Standards, and Sunbeam Policies and Practices, regarding the Customer Service, Integrated, and any other such legislated Accessibility Regulations that might be created.
