The Town of BWG's Commitment to Accessibility

The Town endeavours to demonstrate leadership in the areas of accessibility.  The Town of BWG’s Accessibly Advisory Committee provides comments and advice to Council and staff on ways to ensure accessibility in all Town services, facilities and programs in accordance with the requirements of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA), Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act, 2005 (AODA) and the Ontario Human Rights Code (The Code). 

Accessibility Standards

The 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 organizations 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.
