Accessible Customer Service Plan
Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities
Trisura is committed to ensure that all of its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equal opportunity.
Persons with disabilities may use their own assistive devices as needed when accessing goods and services. We will ensure that our staff is familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
Guide Dogs and Service Animals
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are permitted in areas of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person, is permitted have that person accompany them on our premises. If confidential information is to be discussed, consent will be obtained from the customer.
