Creating an Accessibility Policy and Plan

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), you must have an accessibility policy and accessibility plan in place. Creating an accessibility policy and plan may be challenging since legislation only provides an outline of what needs to be included. Every workplace’s policy and plan will differ. The policy and plan must be tailored to your business environment and the goods and services you offer. Below we provide suggestions on how to start creating an accessibility policy and plan. Furthermore, we provide a checklist to ensure that you have all of your bases covered.
