An Introduction to the
Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA)
An Introduction to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is a summary only. It is not legal advice. If there is a conflict between this introduction and the AODA, the Act prevails.
Why does Ontario have this legislation?
Ontario needs to be more accessible to people with disabilities. It is the right thing to do. It also makes good sense economically and socially. Ontario’s population is getting older. Twenty years from now, 20 per cent of the people living in the province will probably have a disability of some kind. When barriers get in the way of people with disabilities participating fully in society as a result of their disabilities, everyone in Ontario loses.
