Our Commitment to Accessibility

The Royal Commission of Inquiry is working to ensure that meeting the accessibility needs of our survivors and employees is how we do business. When we design, build and deliver our services, we are ensuring that accessibility is considered.  In doing this, our survivors are critical in testing our solutions and providing feedback. We’re working to better support our employees, so they are able to better support and service our survivors, and the communities in which they live.
