The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act was passed in 2005 by the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure. Its goal is to make Ontario accessible for people with disabilities by 2025. The Act applies to Public Sector, Broader Public Sector, Private and Not-for-Profit organizations, that provide goods and services to the public and has one or more employees.
AODA is a significant piece of legislation that is complicated and time-consuming to understand, and affects every organization within Ontario. Our AODA solutions provides clarity to your organization through quality Consulting and Training. We will help you understand and meet legislation for a more accessible workplace and environment.
For those who do not have the time or the background to interpret the 5 different standards and the varying dates of compliances, the AODA team at WSPS will provide a “gap analysis” and identify the next steps.
The AODA Solutions are a combination of consulting services and training products for Ontario organizations with 1 or more employees. There are two sets of solutions, one designed to meet the Customer Service Standard (CSS), the other designed to meet the Integrated Accessibility Standard Regulation (IASR).
