Our Accessibility Vision
LoyaltyOne is committed to include Ontarians of all abilities in realizing our vision.
LoyaltyOne complies with the Accessibility for Ontarians Act, 2005 (AODA). We view accessibility as providing our Associates, Collectors and Partners 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 LoyaltyOne.
Our accessibility principles
- To support initiatives that remove barriers and promote or increase equitable access to our services.
- To promote a healthy, barrier-free work environment where employees can participate fully in all aspects of their job.
- To be a great place to work and celebrate our people by creating a rewarding and meaningful experience that is accessible to all Associates, Collectors and Partners.
- To maintain a comprehensive Accessibility Policy and a multi-year Accessibility Plan.
- To provide, through our ongoing work, a range of accessibility services and support for people with disabilities.
- To ensure that our information and communications to Associates, Collectors and Partners are accessible.

Complying with the Accessible Employment Standards regulation
LoyaltyOne meets the requirements of Section 27 of Accessible Employment Standards within the IASR. Under this section, we are required to provide individualized workplace emergency response information to employees who have a disability. If the employee requires assistance in case of an emergency, and consented to have information about his or her accommodation needs shared, LoyaltyOne will provide the workplace emergency response information to the person designated by LoyaltyOne to provide assistance to the employee.
- LoyaltyOne employees have been notified of our commitment to work with them to create individual workplace emergency response information. The availability of accommodations is communicated to all employees on a regular basis. Alternate formats are used if required by specific employees. Our respectful process ensures privacy for people who self-identify as needing accommodation.
- Where the need for an individualized workplace emergency response is identified, the designated Chief Fire Warden will confer with the employee to establish a specific emergency plan based on the needs of the individual employee.
