Physical or Architectural Barriers

The offices of the Commissioner of Canada Elections (CCE) in Gatineau (Quebec) should be accessible to all who need to access them. Moreover, while carrying out their investigative work, CCE investigators will often set up meetings with witnesses and persons who are the subject of an investigation across the country to obtain their version of events. Places chosen to meet with witnesses and persons who are the subject of an investigation should be accessible and free of physical or architectural barriers. We want to identify possible physical or architectural barriers that might have temporarily or permanently refrained someone from accessing these facilities.

Have you faced physical or architectural barriers at the offices of the CCE or when meeting with CCE investigators at another location?

Attitudinal Barriers

Attitudes can be the most difficult barrier that persons with disabilities face in achieving full integration, acceptance, and participation in society. This can include things such as the words we use, and the way we present information. Attitudinal barriers come from the way people think or behave. They can be based on stereotypes or assumptions, or simply a lack of understanding.

A person with a disability can expect to be offered any reasonable accommodation that allows them to effectively interact with us, and these interactions should be free from any attitudinal barrier.

Systemic Barriers

The CCE wants to ensure that there are no systemic barriers that result in some people receiving unequal access or being excluded. For example, systemic barriers may be found in the design or implementation of policies, programming, procedures, or events. It might be related to an external service, a hiring process, an internal policy, etc.
