Accessibility

Statement of Commitment

CADTH is a pan-Canadian, not-for-profit organization responsible for providing health care decision-makers with evidence, advice, and recommendations on the assessment, adoption, and management of health care technologies, including drugs, medical devices, and other clinical interventions.

It is our privilege to play a role in informing policy decisions and influencing the delivery of evidence-informed health care. And, as such, it is essential for us to continue removing barriers to accessibility so that all people have equal access to find, use, participate in, and benefit from our products, services, and events.

This updated multi-year plan outlines the actions we are taking to meet our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. These include modernizing our accessibility policies, carefully examining our office environment and events — both in-person and virtual — and enhancing how we support our employees, future employees, users of our programs and services, patients, and members of the public.

CADTH is committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that respects their dignity and independence, creating a transparent process for requesting accommodations, and integrating a robust feedback process to support continuous improvement. This document will serve as a valuable roadmap on that journey.

Our plan has been reviewed and approved by CADTH’s Executive Team and we welcome comments and feedback from all our stakeholders.
