AODA: What you need to know

Do you have a business in Ontario? Do you have at least one other employee?

You have probably heard about the upcoming legislation called the 'Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act' but may not know everything about it... and not saying I do, but here is what you need to know:

As well, having 'safety signs' posted that let customers know of service disruptions is important.

Fortunately, the Ontario Government has a variety of templates and tools to help you get started.

I know this is specific to Ontario, but it is only a matter of time before similar legislation makes its way across all provinces.

This piece of legislation, I think, is a good thing that in the long run will probably make our lives easier - how grateful are you for automatic doors for example?

What is your organization doing to get prepared for it?
