The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act was established to develop and implement accessibility
standards to make goods, services, and facilities accessible to Ontarians with disabilities and to provide for
the involvement of persons with disabilities in the development of the accessibility standards. The first
standard of the AODA is the customer service standard; however, standards for transportation, employment,
and information and communication are also being developed. The AODA applies to the Government of
Ontario, the Legislative Assembly, every designated public sector organization, and to every other person or
organization that provides goods, services, or facilities to the public or other third parties and that has at
least one employee in Ontario; and accessibility measures must be implemented on or before January 1,
2025. For more information, go to
