AODA update

The goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is to make Ontario accessible for people with disabilities by 2025.

The Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) developed standards and rules that businesses and organizations must follow to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.

As of January 1, 2012, all private and non-profit sector organizations, with one or more employees, must be in compliance with the AODA Customer Service Standards. Employers are responsible for training staff in AODA requirements and CMLTO is working to ensure its own customer service efforts comply.

The primary role for health regulatory Colleges in supporting their members’ compliance is as information conduits. Colleges are not responsible for training nor monitoring of members' AODA compliance.

If you have concerns about AODA compliance in your workplace, speak with your employer. For more information about the Act, go to the MCSS website.
