Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005) establishes a legal framework for a more inclusive Ontario. There are five key standards:

  • Customer Service
  • Employment
  • Information and Communications
  • Transportation
  • Design of Public Spaces

More information on the AODA itself can be found here.

The AODA Alliance provides advice to the provincial government on the administration of the Act, and acts as a liaison to the broader disability community.
