Did you know that Ontario adopted a strong accessibility law over ten years ago? The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) from 2005 aims to make the province fully accessible by 2025. Unlike Quebec’s disability law, the AODA applies to both the public and private sectors. It also includes penalties to ensure compliance.
Quebec Accessible has developed bilingual plain language tools to help you understand Ontario’s accessibility law. They explain what businesses, non-profits and government agencies must do to make their services accessible to people with disabilities.
