This accessibility policy and plan outlines how Karbonate Minerals Corp. (“Karbonate”) complies with Ontario Regulation 191/11 (“Integrated Accessibility Standards”) under the Accessibility for Ontario residents and visitors with the Disabilities Act, 2005 (“AODA”).

The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulations (“IASR”) under the AODA require that Karbonate establish, apply, maintain and validate its Accessibility programs and multi-year Accessibility plans (the “Accessibility Plan”), which outlines Karbonate’s strategy for precluding and removing walls for persons with disabilities and to meet our conditions under the IASR. The Accessibility Plan can be set up on Karbonate’s website and is also available in an accessible format upon request. The Accessibility Plan will be reviewed and amended, if applicable, at least formerly every five (5) years.

Our Commitment

In fulfilling its mission, Karbonate strives to treat all individuals in a manner that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. Karbonate promotes integration and equal opportunity and is committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. Karbonate seeks to achieve this by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and by meeting accessibility requirements under the AODA for individuals based in Ontario, Canada. This Accessibility Policy and Multi-Year Accessibility Plan sets out Karbonate’s policy on how it achieves accessibility generally, as well as in employment, and information and communications.

Under the IASR, the following accessibility strategies set out the requirements that are applicable to Karbonate:

  • Emergency Response;
  • Training;
  • Communication;
  • Employment.
Accessible Emergency Information

Karbonate is committed to providing all customers and clients in Ontario, Canada with publicly available emergency information in an accessible way upon request.

Karbonate takes into account the accessibility needs of employees with disabilities, as well as individual accommodation plans:

  • when using its performance management process in respect of employees with disabilities;
  • when providing career development and advancement to employees with disabilities; and
  • when redeploying employees with disabilities.

Where Karbonate is aware that an Employee has a disability and that there is a need for accommodation, individualized workplace emergency response information will be provided to the Employee as soon as practicable if such information is necessary given the nature of the Employee’s disability.

Training and Communication

Karbonate is committed to providing training on the requirements of the accessibility standards referred to in the IASR and on the Ontario Human Rights Code, as it pertains to persons with disabilities.

Karbonate is committed to making company information and communications accessible to persons with disabilities. Karbonate incorporates new accessibility requirements under the information and communication standards to ensure that its information and communications systems and platforms are accessible and are provided, upon request, in accessible formats that meet the needs of persons with disabilities.

In accordance with the IASR, Karbonate:

  • ensures that processes for receiving and responding to feedback are accessible to persons with disabilities by providing or arranging for the provision of accessible formats and communication supports, upon request and in a timely manner;
  • more broadly, as a general principle where accessible formats and communication supports for persons with disabilities are requested:
    1. provides or arranges for the provision of such accessible formats and communication supports;
    2. consults with the person making the request to determine the suitability of the accessible format or communication support;
    3. provides or arranges for the provision of accessible formats and communication supports in a timely manner that takes into account the person’s accessibility needs due to disability, and at a cost no more than the regular cost charged to other persons; and
    4. notifies the public about the availability of accessible formats and communication supports.

Karbonate will work toward making its websites and web content conform with the World Wide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2, WCAG 2.1 & WCAG 2.2), subject to any exceptions set out in the IASR, by January 1, 2024.
