Celebrating 10 years of accessability!

This year, Ontario celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). This landmark law has made Ontario a leader in accessibility. Ontario is admired around the world for its progressive, diverse and inclusive society and this is something we can all be very proud of!

The AODA has made the province a leader in accessibility and is helping to break down barriers for people with disabilities so they can lead active and productive lives. About 1.65 million people in Ontario – or 15% of our province’s population, age 15 and above – have a disability and this number is expected to rise over the next two decades. Accessibility is the right thing to do for all Ontarians. Working together, we can build a more inclusive Ontario where everyone has the opportunity to contribute to – and benefit from – our economy.
