Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) tells businesses and organizations they must provide access for people with disabilities in the areas of transportation, customer service, information and communication, employment, and buildings and outdoor spaces. There are community committees around the province who identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities.
The Accessibility Directorate of Ontario is a government group that provides:
- Public education and training about accessibility
- Tools and resources to help communities become more accessible
- Increased public awareness about the importance of accessibility
