The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is pleased to publish our first Accessibility Plan in response the Federal Government’s Accessible Canada Act (ACA). CDIC intends not only to meet the goals of this legislation but to exceed them whenever possible.
CDIC is dedicated to being accessible to all Canadians. This includes making our workplace, and our activities and services accessible to people with disabilities. We understand that accessibility needs evolve over time and that people with disabilities are the experts in their own experience and accessibility. We commit to keep listening to people who have disabilities and to continually improve accessibility at CDIC for all our stakeholders. This includes the people whose deposits we protect and who rely on our information and services, and the people with whom we work to keep our country’s financial system stable, our member institutions, and our employees.
CDIC understands the importance of being a barrier-free organization, which is why we have taken important actions to identify and remove barriers discovered through consultations with persons with disabilities. Wherever possible, CDIC will address barriers as soon as we become aware of them even if they are not scheduled in our Accessibility Plan.
