Details and specs


The second set of standards to be enacted under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA, 2005), the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation combines accessibility standards in three areas, information and communications, employment, and transportation. Similar to the Customer Service Standard, these standards apply to all organizations in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors that provide goods, services, or facilities to the public or third parties. The requirements in the regulation will be phased in between 2011 and 2025 and have been designed to give organizations time for implementation.

The publication offers an overview of the new standards, the associated timelines for compliance and resources, and guidance for implementing the requirements. Implementing accessibility requirements into your day-to-day operations is not going to be an easy task. There are many considerations, depending on the type and size of your organization as well as the available internal resources and constraints within your organization.

This guide was written to support organizations in Ontario in complying with the new standards such as the information and communications standards, the employment standards, and the transportation standards. However, the resources and information provided can be adapted and used in other jurisdictions to promote inclusive and accessible practices in the provision of goods, services, or facilities.
