Accessibility

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed in 2005 with the goal of creating an accessible Ontario by 2025. This legislation is unique because it:

  • applies to both public and private organizations
  • requires obliged organizations to be proactive in identifying, preventing and removing barriers to accessibility
  • shifts the focus from the individual who requires an accommodation and focuses on the obligations of organizations to remove barriers

Any course with an online component needs to accessible, starting as of January, 2012. Some links are below to help you ensure your course is accessible.
