In June 2005, the Ontario Government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) with a vision of a fully accessible Ontario by 2025.
Integrated Accessibility Standards
The Integrated Accessibility Standards came into effect on July 1, 2011 and apply to all organizations – public, private, and non-profit. The requirements of this standard will be phased in over time from 2011 to 2025. The Regulation covers the following standard areas:
- Information and Communication
- Design of Public Spaces (Built Environment)
- Customer Service
Accessibility Compliance Reporting
Businesses, non-profit organizations and public sector organizations, such as municipalities, must file an accessibility compliance report periodically with the Government of Ontario to confirm that the organization has met the applicable requirements under AODA.
