Accommodations (AIM)

Accommodation & Inclusion Management

Accommodation and Inclusion Management (AIM) delivers proactive and responsive interventions to improve the management and implementation of accommodations and workplace adjustments for Canadian businesses. Historically, workplace accommodations have revolved around removing barriers to participation based on an individual’s disability. AIM offers a new perspective: accommodating employees based on obstacles to success/productivity, medicalized or not. AIM establishes a framework of standardized, de-medicalized, scalable and evidence-based methods of solution delivery. 

 

  • Do you have an employee that requires accommodations or access to an accommodation assessment? 
  • Do you have a question or are not sure how to proceed with an employee’s request for accommodations?  
  • Are you looking to update your organizations policies to comply with the Accessible Canada Act (ACA)? Or are you unsure if your current policies comply with the ACA?
