AODA Policy

At kawartha downs

The Accessibility of Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is a law passed by the Ontario legislature that allows the government to develop specific standards of accessibility and to enforce them. The standards are made into laws called regulations, and they provide the details to help meet the goal of the AODA. The AODA is the foundation on which the standards are built.

Accessibility Standards
The purpose of the accessibility standards is to increase accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities. The standards which are Customer Service, Transportation, Information and Communications, Employment & the Built Environment will be reviewed at least every five years. Ontario will move step by step towards accessibility that is widespread and commonplace. The goal of the Act is to make the Province of Ontario fully accessible to people with disabilities by 2025.
