Kushies Baby strives to meet the needs of its employees and customers with disabilities and is working hard to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.
Our organization/business is committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. This accessibility plan outlines the steps Kushies Baby is taking to meet those requirements and to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.
Our plan shows how Kushies Baby will play its role in making Ontario an accessible province for all Ontarians.
Kushies Baby has remained in compliance with the Customer Service Standard and is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.
Our accessible customer service policies are consistent with the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality of opportunity for people with disabilities.
People with disabilities may use their personal assistive devices when accessing our goods, services or facilities.
In cases where the assistive device presents a significant and unavoidable health or safety concern or may not be permitted for other reasons, other measures will be used to ensure the person with a disability can access our goods, services or facilities.

Information and Communications
Kushies Baby is committed to making our information and communications accessible to people with disabilities. We will work with the person with a disability to determine what method of communication works for them.
