Local laws about service animals in the workplace vary by province and city.
However, Canada’s federal Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on disability, and not allowing a service animal to enter your premises is typically considered a discriminatory act.
For example, if you run a food manufacturing facility, you can legally ban service dogs in many cases.
If you own a cafe, a restaurant or a bar, though, you almost always need to open the door to customers and employees with service animals.
In many properties, our staff will be located onsite or nearby, so they are readily available to assist you.
These classifications can be a little confusing at times, but in most cases, it’s relatively easy to accommodate service animals.Because we understand how important it is to feel at home, our apartments are fully furnished (including bedding and linen) and fully self-contained, so you can cook the meals you enjoy.And just like home, you are responsible for keeping your apartment clean during your stay.The Accessible Information Management system, or AIM, will allow new and current students of SAAS more independence in managing their approved accommodations.For more information, check out our AIM How-To Videos.
