Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

This Multi-Year Accessibility Plan outlines an on-going strategy to prevent and remove barriers and addresses the current and future requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (“AODA”). Olympus Canada will report on the progress and implementation of this plan, post the information on our website and will provide it in alternative formats upon request. This plan will be reviewed and updated at least once every five years.
