AODA

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) was enacted as a way to systemically address barriers and achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities.

The purpose of the AODA is to develop, implement and enforce accessibility standards so businesses and organizations that provide goods and services will have to meet certain accessibility standards in five important areas of our lives:

  • Customer Service
  • Transportation
  • Information and Communication
  • Built Environment
  • Employment

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is an important law as it sets out the structure by which we can make Ontario accessible to all people by 2025.
