It’s The Law: Ontario is now enforcing Accessibility Standards

The Ontario Government is introducing five sets of mandatory standards under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). These standards require public and private sector organizations to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility for customers and employees with disabilities. The legislation is part of the Ministry of Community and Social Services' (MCSS) plan to ensure that, by 2025, people with disabilities are able to participate in and enjoy opportunities available to people without disabilities. As part of the AODA legislation, every business in Ontario that provides goods or services to the public and has at least one employee will have to comply with Accessibility Standards for Customer Service by January 1, 2012.
