Manitoba Music Accessible Customer Service Policy
Statement of Commitment
Manitoba Music is committed to achieving accessibility and ensuring the participation for people of all abilities and treating all people with dignity and respect. We believe in inclusion, and value diversity, accountability, foresight, integrity, excellence, and passion. We recognize the importance of improving access and removing barriers and will do this by identifying, removing, and preventing barriers wherever possible. We are committed to meeting the requirements of The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA).
The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) became law in December, 2013. This landmark legislation provides a proactive process to remove barriers affecting persons with disabilities and many other citizens. The Government of Manitoba is committed to achieve significant progress by 2023, making Manitoba more inclusive for everyone. Read more at accessibilitymb.ca/law.html
This policy has been developed with input from an advisory committee.

Career consultations and meetings are available off-site whenever possible or via telecommunications. Workshops and panels are streamed live and archived online when possible. ASL interpretation and live transcription can be available by request with one week’s notice.
Manitoba Music ensures that all staff will be trained on accessibility requirements under The Accessibility for Manitobans Act and the Accessible Customer Service Standard. As new standards are developed, updates to training will be developed and delivered to employees. All new staff, as well as board members who develop policies will receive training on our Accessible Customer Service Policy.
