Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities (AODA) Customer Service Policy


The goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, is to make Ontario accessible to people with disabilities. The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service have been created to ensure that goods and services are accessible to all Ontarians and that persons with disabilities are treated with respect, dignity and equality.
