Accessibility and accommodation

Accessibilty at CP Headquarters in OgdenCP is committed to providing a work environment that promotes diversity and inclusion, where everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in creating business success.

We have established effective mechanisms for responding to requests for individual accommodation related to: cognitive, developmental, intellectual, mental, physical, sensory or a combination of multiple factors; religious requirements; gender transition; or other personal circumstances up to the point of undue hardship.

Applicants should inform the Talent Acquisition advisor or hiring manager handling the selection process of any accommodation required to progress through the selection process, and/or required for the applicable position.

At CP we hire based on skill and ability. Self-Identification is encouraged, voluntary and confidential and we use the self-identification aggregate data to identify and remove barriers to equity.

“Early in my career I was reluctant to self-identify as a person with a hidden disability as I thought companies would be biased against me. However, I have now worked in many types of companies at many levels and that bias has not proven true. I now choose to self-identify to be candid, ensure my safety and those around me, and because I may require accommodation at some point.” CP Managing Director

Peter Quaiattini, who is legally blind, was actively involved with planning CP’s new headquarters to meet and exceed accessibility and employment equity requirements.
