Statement of Organizational Accessibility Commitment

The AIR MILES® Reward Program is committed to the principles outlined in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and to meeting the needs of people with disabilities, in a timely manner, through the implementation of the requirements of the Act.

Accessibility Goals

The AIR MILES® Reward Program complies with the Accessibility for Ontarians Act, 2005 (AODA). We view accessibility as providing our associates, customers and stakeholders with uninhibited access to all our services and information. Our goal is to be a barrier-free organization by identifying, removing and preventing barriers that may limit the involvement of people regardless of ability. Most importantly, the core principles of the Act — independence, dignity, integration, equality of opportunity for people with disabilities — are aligned with inclusion, our strategy to give persons with disabilities opportunity equal to that given to others to obtain, use or benefit from the goods and services provided on behalf of the AIR MILES® Reward Program.
