Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA)

Ontario has an important law addressing accessibility. It's called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. It is the first of its kind in Canada. The goal is to create provincial accessibility standards and make Ontario completely accessible by 2025.

  • Information and Communication
  • Built Environment
  • Employment
