Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities (AODA)
The 5 AODA Standards
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is a 2005 law that sets out a process for developing and enforcing accessibility standards. Under the AODA, the government is responsible for creating accessibility standards that organizations must follow. The law lays out required practices for 5 areas of business: information and communication, employment, transportation, design of public spaces, and customer service.
