TCR Accessibility Plan
Total Credit Recovery Limited (TCR) strives at all times to meet the needs of its employees and customers with disabilities and is working hard to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility. Our organization is committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA). This accessibility plan outlines the steps TCR is taking to meet those requirements and to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.
TCR is committed to providing accessible customer service to people with disabilities. We provide all services to people with disabilities with the same high quality and timeliness as others. TCR is committed to providing communication methods to remove barriers for people with disabilities, training employees to familiarize themselves with communication, equipment and support devices and tools such as service animals. TCR has implemented an Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities (AODA) Policy which outlines the responsibilities of employees and others who deal with the public on behalf of TCR in providing goods and services to people with disabilities in compliance with the AODA.
