Accessibility Legislation

The Government of Ontario passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) to develop, implement and enforce accessibility standards created to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises on or before January 1st, 2025.

Standards have been developed in five areas: Customer Service, Transportation, Information and Communication, Employment and Public Spaces (Built Environment). These standards have been made into laws called regulations and they provide the details to help meet the goals of the AODA.

There are two such regulations: 
Accessiblity Standards for Customer Service which came into effect on January 1st, 2008 and,
Integrated Accessibility Standards which came into effect on January 1st, 2011. 

For more information on Accessibility Standards please contact the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
