AODA Alliance’s 2011 Year-End Report – Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Headed

Much of the first half of 2011 was taken up with advocating for the passage of a strong and effective accessibility standard to address the barriers that over 1.5 million Ontarians with disabilities face in the areas of transportation, information and communication, and employment. On February 1, 2011, the McGuinty Government released its final draft of the Integrated Accessibility Regulation (IAR) that it was considering enacting to address these areas. This regulation had been under development for four years.
