Multi Year Accessibility Plan

Peninsula’s Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

As part of Peninsula’s commitment to accessibility, our multi-year accessibility plan outlines our strategy and the actions that have been and will be implemented to prevent and remove barriers and to meet our requirements under the Accessibilities for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

This multi-year accessibility plan will cover efforts by both Peninsula and BrightHR with respect to compliance with AODA legislation.

This multi-year accessibility plan focuses on our initiatives in respect of the AODA’s Accessibility Standards including:

  • Customer service
  • Information and communications
  • Policies and training
  • Employment
  • Feedback

Information and Communication 

In accordance with the AODA, Peninsula will:

  • Ensure Peninsula notifies the public and provides, on request, accessible formats and supports for people with disabilities in a timely manner and at no additional cost to others by 1 January 2028.
  • Ensure conformation with Level AA of the WCAG 2.0 as required by the standard by 1 January 2029.


In accordance with the AODA’s Employment Standards Peninsula will:

Ensure inclusive employment processes for recruitment, retention and development within the firm, including:

  • Notification of the company’s commitment to accessibility and availability of accommodation
  • Provision of accessible formats and communication supports that take into account employees’ accessibility needs
  • Taking employees’ disabilities and accommodation needs into account in respect of performance management and career development
  • Ensuring processes are in place to support employee / workplace accommodation requests following absences from work and during an employee’s employment

This step was accomplished as of January 1, 2021

Policies and Training

Peninsula has and will continue to implement policies and practices and training initiatives in accordance with the AODA by taking the following steps:

  • Premade training modules for our people on accessibility in the provision of services to our clients to be implemented by 1 January 2025.
  • Implementing a statement of our organization’s commitment to meet the accessibility needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner and in compliance with the AODA’s Integrated Accessibility. Implemented as of December 1, 2023

Training will be provided in a way that best suits the nature of our people’s work.

A Workplace Emergency Response Plan will be provided to employees who have indicated to the firm that they have a disability and require assistance in the event of an emergency.

This plan will be reviewed at least once every five years.

Design of Public Spaces

As of 1 January 2024, Peninsula does not have any plans for new construction or significant redevelopment of its Ontario offices to which the Design of Public Spaces Standard of the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation is applicable. For any future plans to which this Standard would be applicable, however, Peninsula will comply with the required responsibilities under this Standard.

Peninsula will also put in place procedures to prevent service disruption to accessible elements of its public spaces as required under the Design of Public Spaces Standard. In the event of a service disruption affecting these accessible elements, Peninsula will notify the public of such service disruption and any available alternatives.

Client Feedback

Peninsula is pleased to have established its Commitment to Accessibility for Clients policy, which outlines our commitment to ensuring our services are accessible to our clients and our training plan. We achieved compliance with the AODA’s Customer Service Standard by 1 December 2023.

Peninsula submitted its annual report confirming compliance with this standard as of 31 December 2023 and will continue to ensure compliance with the Accessible Customer Service Standard.


Receiving feedback from our people, clients and the public is an important part of our commitment to accessibility. We have a feedback process to respond to enquiries and suggestions. Details are available on our intranet for our people, as well as in our Commitment to Accessibility policy on [link]. We will continue to monitor and respond to feedback promptly.
