Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities
Zarpac Inc. is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.Assistive Devices
We will ensure that our staff is trained and familiar with various assistive devices we have on site or that we provide that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.Communication
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability and the four guiding principles of the Act.
Dignity - the service we provide will allow the person with a disability to maintain their self-respect and the respect of others.
Independence - we will allow the person with the disability to do things on their own without unnecessary help or interference from others.
Integration - we will provide the same service, in the same place and in a same or similar manner to all individuals whether disabled or not unless an alternate measure is necessary.
Equal Opportunity - people with disabilities will have an opportunity equal to that given to others to access our services.
