Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities

The government of Ontario enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act in 2005. This act lays the framework for the development of province-wide mandatory standards on accessibility in all areas of daily life.

Accessibility Standards

Ontario now has accessibility standards in five areas:

  • Customer Service
  • Employment
  • Information and communications
  • Transportation
  • Design of public spaces

Learn more about the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005

For more information on AODA, please visit www.AccessON.ca

All clients, employees, potential employees, service providers, and members of the community are provided a barrier free environment that supports the dignity of each individual.

This will be reflected throughout the Waterloo Wellington LHIN by:

  • People with disabilities being able to enter the Waterloo Wellington LHIN and reach their destinations without encountering barriers
  • People with disabilities receiving the services they require without encountering barriers
  • People with disabilities working without encountering barriers
  • Accessibility being incorporated into the Waterloo Wellington LHIN policies and practices
  • Accessibility being accepted as everyone's responsibility

The Statement of Commitment as well as our Accessibility Policies will be posted for review shortly.  They are:
