The government enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) in 2005. This Act sets out a clear goal and time frame to make Ontario accessible by 2025. The Act lays the framework for the development of province-wide mandatory standards on accessibility in all areas of daily life. Public, private and non-profit organizations across Ontario have been working together to improve the everyday lives of people with disabilities. Ontario now has accessibility standards in five areas:
- Customer Service
- Information and Communications
- Design of Public Spaces
Copies of the policies are in the Corporate Manual, located in the NIGGV Library. If you require assistance, contact the Administration Office.
