AODA Alliance: Help Us Respond to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s and the Public Transit Sector’s Efforts to Weaken the Integrated Accessibility Regulation (IAR) and to Delay its Enactment

We now have a unique insight into the views of perhaps the most vocal voices advocating to weaken the McGuinty Government’s proposed new regulation to address barriers facing persons with disabilities in the areas of employment, transportation, and information and communication. It is striking that this resistance comes from organizations that advocate for municipal governments and public transit authorities in Ontario. In other words, these are the voices of local government agencies, raised to try to slow down progress towards accessibility for persons with disabilities.
