In the event it may not be possible to convert requested program or course materials for someone with a specific disability or restriction, we issue a timely explanation as to the reasons for select document(s) being unconvertible. (For example, the technology to convert the information is not readily available, or the information may be lost in the conversion process and cannot be conveyed in a meaningful way). We offer a summary of information that is available to them to promote continued access to alternate accommodation supports.

In addition, the management of collaborative stakeholder partnerships with over 500 different disability and diversity association across the province, participation in regular community advisory group consultations, contributions to municipal/provincial/federal agency working committees, and delivery of accessibility driven public information workshops across the province are key components of RemedyBlox' business model.

RemedyBlox' Founder's Milestones and Commitments:
Developed the 2007 Provincial Guide into 7 languages with over 27 various accessible formats (e.g., large print, audio, video with captions, cds, diskettes, e-formats, etc.) to accommodate easy-read copies for persons with disabilities and special needs in Ontario and across Canada, as well as for persons not versed or fluent in the English or French language.
Earned the province of Ontario the prestigious National Canadian Red Cross Humanitarian Award in 2008, in recognition for the Provincial Guide publication that helped millions of Ontarians with disabilities and with special needs become better prepared for an emergency event. (3+ million copies distributed in print, cds, diskettes and on-line downloads since official launch in 2007).
Delivered over 300 community group information sessions and town hall public education presentations for thousands in attendance across municipalities and for disability agency groups to promote improved public accessibility awareness and help Ontarians with disabilities and other vulnerable segments of the population become better prepared for an emergency event. (2007 - 2011)
Planned, developed and managed many provincial conference events for government officials, ministry staff, NGOs, members of the general public including launching the 1st Annual UN International Day for People with Disabilities Forum in Ontario in 2007 followed by the 2nd Annual UN Forum in 2008. Each of these provincial forums was specifically planned to deliver full accommodation and ease of access to 100's in attendance to and during the events.
Presented a comprehensive 2 hours workshop to over 300 national and international delegates at the World Conference of Disaster Management (2007).
Spearheaded the provincial government's new Diversity Consultation Initiative in 2010 and 2011 including developing and managing two separate large scale diversity forums that brought together over 100 diversity stakeholder agencies to identify new communication solutions for relaying key emergency preparedness information to Ontarians with language barriers, of different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds including to help the province better understand how best to accommodate each diverse group's particular restrictions and special needs during a declared emergency event.
Contributed to various NGO disability agency steering committees in the development of improved access for client groups (2007 - 2011).
Introduced staff lunch'n learn sign language educational series to improve communications with members of the deaf community. (2009)
Managed and developed over 500 collaborative accessibility and diversity stakeholder partnerships with various provincial and national NGOs, municipal, provincial, federal government agencies and business community members to promote best practices in accommodation and inclusion of clients from diverse minority and special needs groups.

Developed and managed hundreds of corporate events, educational forums, industry conferences and public educational workshops and learning programs that focused on Risk Reduction and Harm Prevention since 1998. Each event was planned to meet the accommodation needs of event participants with disabilities and special needs, well before the ADO became enacted into law in 2001 in Ontario. (Primarily, because providing equitable ease of access and accommodation at each event was a natural consideration in the spirit of inclusion.)
Worked as a weekly safety columnist for the Metro Toronto Newspaper with over 120 public safety awareness and risk mitigation articles published to a weekly local Toronto readership of over 540,000 not including on-line followers.
Served as a contributing writer and editor for several magazine publications that promoted personal safety strategies to the general public as well as to help empower the most vulnerable from becoming exploited and harmed by the criminal element.
In light of RemedyBlox founder's Subject Matter Expertise in Accessibility Design and Accommodation Implementation, and post-graduate degrees in Criminology, Victimology, Human Behavior Science, Law and Ethics, including demonstrable commitment to the promotion of accessibility and accommodation, and contribution to the protection of the most vulnerable segments in society, is what sets our services apart from our competitors. We at RemedyBlox can say with conviction that we lead by example, leaving firmly placed accommodation footprints for others to follow.
