What does Accessibility mean at St.Amant? 

At St.Amant, we believe that accessibility means participation for all people. We commit to achieving full accessibility in partnership with the people we support, their support networks, and our staff. We commit to meeting or exceeding our obligations under The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA).

In part, this includes providing training to all St.Amant staff about the AMA Customer Service Standard.

What does the AMA Customer Service Standard eLearning for St.Amant staff training include?

This eLearning training module will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and reviews the following topics:

  • The AMA, the Customer Service Standard, and the Manitoba Human Rights Code
  • Barriers to accessibility and how these might prevent a person from participating fully and equally in society
  • St.Amant’s Statement of Commitment to accessibility
  • Accessible and respectful communication
  • Accessibility and personal supports
  • Service animals
  • Assistive devices

Upon completing the module, participants will feel more informed and empowered to provide accessible customer service to the people we support, as well as families, staff, and volunteers.
