Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is provincial legislation enacted for the purpose of developing, implementing and enforcing accessibility standards. The standards seek to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises. The goal of the AODA is to make the Province of Ontario completely accessible by 2025.
Standards have been created as part of the AODA which are rules that businesses and organisations in Ontario need to follow to identify, remove, and prevent barriers.
The Accessibility Standard for Customer Service was the first standard to become law. The next three standards: Transportation, Information and Communication, and Employment have been combined under one regulation, the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation. This regulation is now law and the requirements are being phased in between 2011 and 2021.
