in Canada may have some form of disability.

There is NO legal requirement for a Service Dog to be trained by a Professional Trainer in order to have "public access" rights. For some reason, Service Dog organizations profess that ONLY dogs professionally trained have public access rights.
A disabled person has the right to train his or her own Service Dog, either with the help of a trainer or without. Once the following two requirements are met (owner has a disability and dog is trained to assist the person) The owner and the service dog may not be denied access to any public facility. With your dog wearing a service dog vest you will always be welcomed
