NULOGY ACCESSIBILITY POLICY
At Nulogy, it’s not just business, it’s personal. Nulogy’s software powers global supply chains that touch millions of people all over the world. We are committed to the contributions and personal experiences we provide to anyone that may interact with us – that extends to people of all abilities. Nulogy’s Accessibility Policy is one way we demonstrate our commitment to providing accessibility for our customers, employees, and members of our community by embracing the spirit of the AODA to ensure that it meets any requirements under Ontario’s accessibility legislation.
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (the “AODA”) is a Provincial Act
with the purpose of developing, implementing and enforcing accessibility standards in order
to achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities,
accommodation, employment, buildings, structures, and premises.
The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that all employees, customers, and members of the community that are on Nulogy premises or are using Nulogy services have full and equal access to its facilities, services, and information. Accessibility makes it possible for people with all levels of ability to take advantage of Nulogy’s goods and services.
The Ontario Human Rights Code defines disability as:
(a) Any degree of physical disability, infirmity, malformation or disfigurement that is caused by bodily injury, birth defect or illness and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, includes diabetes mellitus, epilepsy, a brain injury, any degree of paralysis, amputation, lack of physical coordination, blindness or visual impediment, deafness or hearing impediment, muteness or speech impediment, or physical reliance on a guide dog or other animal or on a wheelchair or other remedial appliance or device,
(b) A condition of mental impairment or a developmental disability,
(c) A learning disability, or a dysfunction in one or more of the processes involved in understanding or using symbols or spoken language,
(d) A mental disorder, or
(e) An injury or disability for which benefits were claimed or received under the insurance plan established under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997.
Effective June 29, 2017
Accommodations in Accessing Services
There are many ways that persons with disabilities may require accommodations in the ability to access services. In each case, we will do our best efforts to accommodate all needs, maintaining an environment that respects the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities.
As some of our business is conducted virtually or by phone, Nulogy will need persons with disabilities to identify their needs for assistance. We may use alternate methods to provide services to customers with disabilities, but in each case, will work with the person to make sure their disability is taken into consideration.
Examples of Accommodations may include:
- Assistive Devices;
- Service Animals; and
- Support Persons
We recognize that some customers with disabilities use assistive devices in order to access or benefit from our services. A person with a disability may provide their own assistive device or such other reasonable alternative measure or accommodation that Nulogy may propose for the purpose of obtaining, using and benefiting from the goods and services provided by Nulogy.
Nulogy welcomes people with disabilities and their service animals. A person with disabilities may be accompanied by a guide dog or other service animal when on Nulogy’s premises. If access is required to a non-public area of Nulogy, we will work with the person for the most suitable way to enable the person to obtain, use or benefit from the service.
Nulogy recognizes that some individuals with disabilities rely on support persons for assistance while accessing services. In some cases, Nulogy may require a person with a disability to be accompanied by a support person while on our premises in situations where it is necessary to protect the health and safety of the person with a disability or of others on the premises.A support person may be used for assistance with communication, mobility, personal care, or medical needs.

A support person may be used for assistance with communication, mobility, personal care, or medical needs. A person with disabilities who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to enter into our premises together with the support person, in accordance with Nulogy’s policies and procedures for handling and disclosing confidential information.
Notice of Temporary Disruption
Nulogy will make every effort to notify customers with disabilities of any planned or unexpected disruptions to our services or facilities. This notice will include information on the reasons for disruption, the expected length of the disruption and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available. There may be situations where advanced notice will not be possible.
Where practical, this information will be posted on the premises, our website, and customers with appointments will be contacted and informed of the disruption.
Training will be provided to all employees, volunteers/interns, and contractors who deal with the public or other third parties that act on behalf of Nulogy in accordance with the requirements of AODA.
