Integrated accessibility standards


The following policy has been established by Starlight Investments Capital LP (“Starlight Capital”) to govern the provision of services with Regulation 191/11, “Integrated Accessibility Standards” (“Regulation”) under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005.

We are committed to meeting the needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

This policy will be implemented in accordance with the timeframes established by the Regulation.

Accessibility plan

Starlight Capital will develop, maintain and document an Accessibility Plan outlining the company’s strategy for preventing and removing barriers from its workplace, and for meeting its requirements under the Regulation.

The Accessibility Plan will be reviewed and updated at least once every five years and will be posted on the company’s website. Upon request, Starlight Capital will provide a copy of the Accessibility Plan in an accessible format.

If a selected applicant requests an accommodation, Starlight Capital will consult with the applicant and provide, or arrange for the provision of, a suitable accommodation in a manner that takes into account the applicant’s accessibility needs due to disability.

Notice to successful applicants

Informing employees of supports
Starlight Capital will continue to inform its employees of its policies (and any updates to those policies) used to support employees with disabilities, including policies on the provision of job accommodations that take into account an employee’s accessibility needs due to disability. This information will be provided to new employees in a timely manner after commencing employment.

Accessible formats and communication supports for employees

Upon the request of an employee with a disability, Starlight Capital will consult with the employee to provide, or arrange for the provision of, accessible formats and communication supports for information that is needed to perform his/her job, and information that is generally available to other employees.

In determining the suitability of an accessible format or communication support, Starlight Capital will consult with the employee making the request.

Workplace emergency response information

Starlight Capital will provide individualized workplace emergency response information to employees who have a disability, if the disability is such that the individualized information is necessary, and if Starlight Capital is aware of the need for accommodation due to the employee’s disability. Starlight Capital will provide this information as soon as practicable after becoming aware of the need for accommodation.

Where the employee requires assistance, Starlight Capital will, with the consent of the employee, provide the workplace emergency response information to the person designated by Starlight Capital to provide assistance to the employee.

Starlight Capital will review the individualized workplace emergency response information when the employee moves to a different location in the organization, and the employee’s overall accommodations needs or plans may need to be altered.

Documented individual accommodation plans

Starlight Capital will maintain a written process for the development of documented individual accommodation plans for employees with disabilities.

If requested, information regarding accessible formats and communications support that has been provided will also be included in individual accommodation plans.

In addition, the plans will include individualized workplace emergency response information (where required) and will identify any other accommodation that is to be provided.

The return-to-work process outlines the steps Starlight Capital will take to facilitate the return to work and will include documented individual accommodation plans as part of the process.

This return-to-work process will not replace or override any other return-to-work process created by or under any other statute (e.g., the Workplace Safety Insurance Act, 1997).

Starlight Capital will take into account the accessibility needs of employees with disabilities, as well as individual accommodation plans, when conducting performance management, providing career development and advancement to employees, or when redeploying employees.
