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.
Ontario now has accessibility standards in five areas:
- Customer Service
- Information and communications
- Design of public spaces

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
