AODA Customer Service Policy

Real Sports

Purpose

In accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), Real Sports is committed to improving access and opportunities for people with disabilities by identifying, removing, and preventing barriers that might interfere with their ability to make full use of our restaurant.

Our Commitment

Real Sports is dedicated to providing the ultimate dining and entertainment experience to each and every guest.

We endeavour to provide service to our guests in a manner that reflects the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity. Our commitment is to provide all guests, including those living with disabilities, the same opportunity to benefit from our goods and services by removing barriers that might arise in the course of doing business as follows:

Communication

We will communicate with guests with disabilities in ways that take their disability into account. We will train our people on how to interact and communicate with people with various types of disabilities.

Telephone Services

We are committed to providing fully accessible telephone service to our guests. We will train our people to communicate over the telephone in clear and plain language and to speak clearly and slowly. We will offer to communicate with guests using the relay service or by email if telephone communication is not suitable for their needs or is not available.

Assistive Devices

Real Sports is committed to providing an exceptional experience for all guests and is pleased to offer accessible seating options. Accessible seating sections are barrier-free and feature removable seating that can accommodate wheelchairs. Reservations can be made by calling 416-815-7325.


Parking

There are multiple accessible parking spaces available for guests with disabilities. This parking lot is located in Maple Leaf Square. These spots are located close to the elevator leading up to Real Sports.

Service Animals

Real Sports welcomes our guests with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals may accompany the guest in any areas open to the general public. To ensure the safety of our guests and their service animals, we require that they be seated in an accessible seating section.

Employee Training

Real Sports will provide training to all employees and others who deal with our guests, as well as those who are involved in the development of corporate policies, practices and procedures. Real Sports will also ensure that the staff of all third parties operating within our venue have received training on serving our fans with disabilities.

• How to interact and communicate with guests with various types of disabilities.

• How to interact with guests with disabilities that use an assistive device or require the assistance of a service animal or support person.

• What to do if a guest with a disability is having difficulty accessing our goods or services.

• Real Sports policies, practices and procedures relating to the customer service standard.

• Those involved in policy development will receive additional training about providing goods or services to the public or third parties.

This training will be provided within each employee’s new hire training class. Ongoing training will be provided with respect to any changes to Real Sports Bar & Grill’s policies, practices and procedures.
