Accessible legislation and policies

Currently there are two accessibility legislations in Ontario. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act, 2005 (AODA) and the Ontarians with Disability Act, 2001 (ODA). Both legislations aim to improve accessibility for Ontarians by identifying, removing and preventing barriers faced by persons with disabilities. The AODA applies to all public and private sector organizations in Ontario.

The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) also known as Ontario Regulation 191/11 which is an amendment to the AODA creates a shift from preparing annual accessibility plans to the creation of a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan.
