Accessible Employment Policies
Recruitment and Potential Employment Screening Process

  • Camp Couchiching will provide notification to the public that in its recruitment process, accommodations are available for applicants with disabilities. Camp Couchiching is committed to employment equity and encourages all qualified candidates to apply. If an applicant requires an accommodation at any point during the hiring/employment process they are encouraged to let the camp know that this is the case and inform the camp to the type of accommodation they require so that the camp can work with them to meet their needs. Applicants are also reassured that all responses will be handled with strict confidence.

Notice to Successful Applicants

  • When making offers of employment to the successful applicants, Camp Couchiching will notify the applicant of its policies of accommodating employees with disabilities. The information that accompanies the contract indicates the following: "Camp Couchiching has an accommodation process in place and provides accommodations for employees with disabilities. If you require a specific accommodation because of a disability and/or a medical need please contact Camp Couchiching at 705-325-3428 or so that arrangements can be made for the appropriate accommodations."

Informing Employees of Supports
