Accessibility Plan

The Canadian legislative framework that supports diversity and inclusion was strengthened by the addition of the Accessible Canada Act (ACA or the Act) to ensure a barrier-free Canada. Carson Air has developed a plan over the next three-year period to reduce barriers and prevent the introduction of new barriers based on seven priority action areas.

Carson Air is committed to comply with the Accessible Canada Act and the Canadian Transportation Agency. While we have had an employment equity practices for many years that apply to all aspects of employment with Carson Air Ltd, including recruitment, hiring, training, transfer, promotion, job benefits, pay, dismissal, educational assistance, and social activities, we recognize the need to strengthen workplace initiatives to reach our goals.

We have developed this plan identifying 7 organizational goals:

  • Goal 1 – Promote a culture of accessibility, where respect and inclusion are embedded in all aspects of the workplace and where all employees and students are empowered and supported to achieve their full potential.
  • Goal 2 – Implement accessible practices to eliminate and prevent barriers to the recruitment, retention, and promotion of persons with disabilities.
  • Goal 3 – Ensure that Carson Air’s employees are sufficiently trained
  • Goal 4 – Create a workplace free of physical barriers to improve the working environment for all Carson Air’s employees of various abilities.
  • Goal 5 – Ensure that all employees have a safe environment to work in.
  • Goal 6 – Ensure that all staff have access to the tools and platforms that they need to perform their work.
  • Goal 7 – Share knowledge and best practices widely to reduce barriers across the workplace environment.
