Land Acknowledgement

The City of Hamilton including the Town of Dundas, is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which is an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.  Today, the City of Hamilton is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) and we recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land and its peoples so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers.

1. The Provision of Goods and Services to Persons with Disabilities

Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will make every reasonable effort to ensure that its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity by:

  • ensuring that all members and customers receive the same value and quality;
  • allowing members and customers with disabilities to do things in their own ways, at their own pace when accessing goods and services as long as this does not present a safety risk
  • using alternative methods when possible to ensure that members and customers with disabilities have access to the same services, in the same place and in a similar manner;
  • taking into account individual needs when providing goods and services; and
    communicating in a manner that takes into account the member’s and customer’s disability
2. Assistive Devices

       Members/Customer’s own assistive device(s):

 

Persons with disabilities may use their own assistive devices as required when accessing goods or services provided by Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club.

 

In cases where the assistive device presents a safety concern or where accessibility might be an issue, other reasonable measures will be used to ensure the access of goods and services. For example, open flames and oxygen tanks cannot be near one another. Therefore, the accommodation of a member/customer with an oxygen tank may involve ensuring the member/customer is in a location that would be considered safe for both the member/customer and business. Or, where elevators are not present and where an individual requires assistive devices for the purposes of mobility, service will be provided in a location that meets the needs of the member/customer.

Assistive Devices Provided by Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club:

The following assistive devices are available on a first come, first serve basis and upon request, to assist members/customers in accessing our goods and services

  • Raised seating platforms
  • Walkers
  • Wheelchairs
3. Guide Dogs, Service Animals and Service Dogs

A member/customer with a disability that is accompanied by guide dog, service animal or service dog will be allowed access to premises that are open to the public unless otherwise excluded by law. “No pet” policies do not apply to guide dogs, service animals and/or service dogs.

Food Service Areas:

A member/customer with a disability that is accompanied by guide dog or service dog will be allowed access to food service areas that are open to the public unless otherwise excluded by law.

Other types of service animals are not permitted into food service areas due to the Health Protection and Promotion Act, Ontario Regulation 562 Section 60.

Exclusion Guidelines:

If a guide dog, service animal or service dog is excluded by law Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will offer alternative methods to enable the person with a disability to access goods and services, when possible (for example, securing the animal in a safe location and offering the guidance of an employee).

Applicable Laws:

Food Safety and Quality Act 2001, Ontario Regulation 31/05: Animals not intended for slaughter or to be euthanized are not allowed in any area or room of a meat plant. It also makes an exception for service dogs to allow them in those areas of a meat plant where food is served, sold or offered for sale to customers and in those areas that do not contain animals or animal parts and are not used for the receiving, processing, packaging, labeling, shipping, handling or storing of animals or parts of animals.

The Health Protection and Promotion Act, Ontario Regulation 562 Section 60, normally does not allow animals in places where food is manufactured, prepared, processed, handled, served, displayed, stored, sold or offered for sale. It does allow guide dogs and service dogs to go into places where food is served, sold or offered for sale. However, other types of service animals are not included in this exception.

Dog Owners’ Liability Act, Ontario: If there is a conflict between a provision of this Act or of a regulation under this or any other Act relating to banned breeds (such as pitbulls) and a provision of a by-law passed by a municipality relating to these breeds, the provision that is more restrictive in relation to controls or bans on these breeds prevails.

Recognizing a Guide Dog, Service Dog and/or Service Animal:

If it is not readily apparent that the animal is being used by the customer for reasons relating to his or her disability, Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club may request verification from the customer. Verification may include:

  • a letter from a physician or nurse confirming that the person requires the animal for reasons related to the disability;
  • a valid identification card signed by the Attorney General of Canada; or,
  • a certificate of training from a recognized guide dog or service animal training school

Care and Control of the Animal: The member/customer that is accompanied by a guide dog, service dog and/or service animal is responsible for maintaining care and control of the animal at all time.

Allergies: If a health and safety concern presents itself for example in the form of a severe allergy to the animal, Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will make all reasonable efforts to meet the needs of all individuals.

4. Support Persons

If a member/customer with a disability is accompanied by a support person, Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will ensure that both persons are allowed to enter the premises together and that the member/customer is not prevented from having access to the support person.

the member/customer and support person from sitting beside each other. In these situations Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will make every reasonable attempt to resolve the issue.

 

In situations where confidential information might be discussed, consent will be obtained from the member/customer, prior to any conversation where confidential information might be discussed.

If payment is required by a support person for admission to the premises of Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will ensure that notice is given in advance by posting notice of admission fees for support persons where Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club fees are posted.
