The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) established a Code of Conduct (the “Code”) to help create and maintain a culture of excellence and integrity, and to clearly outline the types of behaviors that are expected in the workplace. It is the responsibility of all Board members, executives and employees of WECHU, including all managers, staff, volunteers, and students to act in a manner consistent with this Code and to hold others accountable to its terms and related policies.
Protecting your privacy is important to the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU). In providing public health services, information we collect about you is governed by the Health Protection and Promotion Act, the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, and the Personal Health Information Protection Act.
We ask that you do not use fragrant products or have scented plants when visiting the Health Unit. For some people, scented items like perfume, cologne, lotion, plants, and flowers can cause serious or deadly allergic reactions.
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is Provincial Legislation with the purpose of developing, implementing and enforcing accessibility standards in order to achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises on or before January 1, 2025.
This Five-year Accessibility Plan builds on past planning and consultation. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit will continue to build on and develop operational policies and guidelines for employees as outlined in this plan. It is a living document that outlines our goals and objectives.
