2490408 Ontario Inc., DBA Rose Rocket (“Rose Rocket”) is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We are committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence.
We believe in integration, and we are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and by meeting our accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (“AODA”) and Ontario’s accessibility laws.
Rose Rocket understands that obligations under the AODA and its accessibility standards do not substitute or limit its obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code or obligations to people with disabilities under any other law.
Rose Rocket is committed to complying with both the Ontario Human Rights Code and the AODA. Rose Rocket 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.
We will ensure that our employees are trained and familiar with various assistive devices we have on-site or that we provide that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods, services or facilities.
We will always take into account a person’s disability when communicating with them and understand the method of communication that works for them.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public and third parties.
When we can’t identify that an animal is a service animal, we might ask for documentation (template, letter or form) from a regulated health professional that confirms the person needs the service animal for reasons relating to their disability.
A service animal can be easily identified through visual indicators, such as when it wears a labeled harness or a vest, or when it helps the person perform certain tasks.
A regulated health professional is defined as a member of one of the following colleges:

We have a process for receiving and responding to feedback and the process is accessible to persons with disabilities upon request.

At Rose Rocket, we are committed to providing equal opportunities for all individuals, including those with disabilities. We notify all employees, job applicants, and the public that accommodations can be made during the recruitment and hiring process. Job applicants are individually notified when they are selected to participate in an assessment or selection process that accommodations are available upon request. We consult with the applicants and provide or arrange for suitable accommodation.
Upon making offers of employment, we notify successful applicants of our policies for accommodating employees with disabilities. We also notify our staff that supports are available for those with disabilities as soon as practicable after they begin their employment. We provide updated information to employees whenever there is a change to existing policies on the provision of job accommodation that takes into account an employee’s accessibility needs due to a disability.
Rose Rocket consults with employees when arranging for the provision of suitable accommodation in a manner that takes into account the accessibility needs due to disability. We also consult with the person making the request in determining the suitability of an accessible format or communication supports specifically for information that is needed in order to perform the employee’s job and information that is generally available to employees in the workplace.
Where needed, Rose Rocket provides customized emergency information to help an employee with a disability during an emergency. With the employee’s consent, we provide workplace emergency information to a designated person who is providing assistance to that employee during an emergency. We provide the information as soon as practicable after we become aware of the need for accommodation due to the employee’s disability. Rose Rocket reviews the individualized workplace emergency response information when the employee moves to a different location in the organization, when the employee’s overall accommodations needs or plans are reviewed, and when the employer reviews its general emergency response policies.
We have a written process to develop individual accommodation plans for employees and for employees who have been absent from work due to a disability and require disability-related accommodations in order to return to work. Our performance management, career development, and redeployment processes take into account the accessibility needs of all employees.
Any policies of Rose Rocket that do not respect and promote the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity for people with disabilities will be modified or removed.
