Accessibilities for Ontarian's with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA)
More than 15% of Ontarians have a disability – that's more than 1 in every 7 people living in Ontario. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) seeks to remove barriers and achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities in a number of key areas.


Under the AODA, the Province of Ontario will implement five accessibility standards:

1. Customer Service
2. Transportation
3. Information and Communication
4. Employment
5. Built Environment

The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, requires organizations in Ontario to meet certain requirements by January 1, 2012. (The other standards: Transportation, Information and Communication, Employment and Built Environment are in various stages of development and will be enacted into law with a phase-in approach)
