Accessible Customer Service Plan
Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities
Camelot Golf & Country Club is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We are committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration, and we are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and by meeting our accessibility requirements under Ontario's accessibility laws.
We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services, including all communications about our operations.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability. Camelot Golf & Country Club commits to providing information in accesible formats at no cost to members and people of the public in a timely manner.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.
Fees will not be charged for support persons for admission to Camelot Golf & Country Club’s premises. We will notify customers of this through a notice posted on our premises and on our web-site.
Notice of temporary disruption
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for members or their guests with disabilities of disabled washrooms or our elevating device, Camelot Golf & Country Club will notify members promptly. This clearly posted notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
The notice will be placed at each club entrance.
