Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)

The AODA aims to identify, remove, and prevent barriers to people with disabilities. By January 1, 2020, all internet and intranet websites and web content must conform with WCAG 2.0 Level AA.

Ontario Regulation 191/11 Integrated Accessibility Standards

The Government of Ontario, Legislative Assembly, and every public sector organization that provides goods, services, or facilities to the public must develop, implement and maintain policies governing how the organization achieves or will achieve document and website accessibility. Obligated organizations, other than small organizations, shall include a statement of organizational commitment to meet the document and website accessibility needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner in their policies. They must also prepare one or more documents describing the policies it developed and make the documents publicly available and, on request, provide them in an accessible format.
