Customer Service Standard
Accessible Customer Service came into effect January 1, 2012. Businesses have until December 31, 2012 to demonstrate compliance by filing an online report. The Accessibility Standard for Customer Service applies to all organizations (public, private and non-profit) that provide goods or services either directly to the public or to other organizations in Ontario and that have one or more employees in Ontario. This includes consultants, manufacturers and wholesalers as well as other businesses and professional services.
