What is AODA?

The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is to ensure
that all Ontarians have fair and equitable access to programs and services and to improve
opportunities for persons with disabilities. The Act will eventually cover all of these areas:

  • Customer service standards
  • Information and communication
  • Employment
  • Transportation
  • Built environment

Loyalist College is obligated and committed to meet the requirements of these standards.

To find out about what is a ‘disability’, what is a ‘barrier’, what is an ‘accessibility standard,’ and much more – go to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act website (Ministry and Community and Social Services).
