The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA)

On June 13, 2005, the Ontario Government introduced the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA). Under the legislation, the provincial government has developed mandatory standards that aim to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities. The purpose of the act is to make Ontario fully accessible by 2025.

The Standards outlined in the Act aim to address the following  five key areas:

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

Ontario has laws to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. Learn about the standards to follow and reporting deadlines for complying with accessibility requirements here.

The Town is focused on providing accessible programs and services for our community.

The Town’s Multi-Year Accessibility Plan 2018-2023 outlines the steps the Town will take as per the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act – Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation.
