e-Zinc Inc. Multi-year Accessibility Plan

Purpose & Statement of Organizational Commitment

At e-Zinc, we are committed to driving the global transition to a sustainable energy future, and concurrently strive to meet the needs of our employees, partners and customers. e-Zinc is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities.

We are committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration, and we are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and meeting our accessibility requirements under local applicable legislation. In Ontario, this includes the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).

e-Zinc is also committed to meeting its current and ongoing obligations under all applicable Human Rights legislation or obligations under any law respecting non-discrimination and creating an inclusive environment. Supported by our Accessibility Policy, this Accessibility Plan outlines the steps we are taking to meet those requirements and to improve opportunities for people with disabilities.

e-Zinc will ensure that timely training is provided to all necessary people to meet requirements under the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulations (IASR) in the AODA and the Human Rights Code (HRC), as well as any other applicable legislation. We will maintain records of such training.
