Accessible Customer Service Notice

In the spirit of Manitoba Access Awareness Week (MAAW) June 14-20th, 2020, Enabling Access Inc. has created a communication tool for the public to use to notify businesses of customer service barriers experienced when attempting to access their goods or services. This accessibility awareness initiative gives people living with disabilities in Manitoba a voice as consumers. The intent is that businesses identified will consider the barriers potential customers are exeperiencing and make efforts to reduce or remove these barriers both online and in-person. 


If you have recently experienced a barrier to accessible customer services at a business you would like to access, please fill out the notice form below and we will forward to the identified business for their consideration. This Notice is available in alternate formats.


If you are a business who has received a notice and would like learn more about what you can do to remove the barriers or apply a work-around solution, please do not hesitate to contact your ability and inclusion specialists at info@enablingaccess.ca.
