THE AODA

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was enacted in 2005 to address barriers to persons with disabilities. Utilizing the definition of ‘disability’ as defined in the Ontario Human Rights Code, the vision of the AODA is to build an accessible Ontario by 2025 through the development and implementation of key standards. For more information, visit the AODA page.
