New Integrated Standards Posted to AODA Site

By Geof Collis

The Provincial Government has posted the new ONTARIO REGULATION 191/11, Integrated Accessibility Standards to its e-Laws website and as expected, it is not accessible.


No semantic markup, headings and lists for example, links that make no sense when read out of context, invalid code and more, all of which make this page non compliant to the very standards it is written for. How ironic.

Of course they have until 2016 to make this particular website compliant, depending on how you parse it, so no big rush.

Fortunately AODA.ca has done the work for them and you can now find an accessible version of the Law at http://www.aoda.ca/?page_id=1192 with a link to the Official page.
