The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, AODA, became law on June 13, 2005. Ontario is thus the first province in Canada to pass legislation to develop mandatory accessibility standards. The act aims to identify, remove, and prevent barriers for people with disabilities, in key areas of daily living. The goal is to make Ontario accessible to people with disabilities by 2025.
We can assist in ensuring compliance is achieved and maintained with every AODA Standard on time and on budget.
