Despite Mayo Moran Independent Review Report Recommending that Ontario Should Beef Up Enforcement, the Wynne Government Plans to Cut Back on Enforcement of Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, Even Though Violations of this Law Remain Rampant Among Private Sector Organizations with At Least Twenty Employees

With only 9 years, 10 months and 3 days left for the Government to lead Ontario to become fully accessible for people with disabilities by 2025, the Ontario Government has taken the backwards step of planning to reduce its already-paltry enforcement of the AODA. This is so even though the Government knows that there remain rampant violations of that legislation among over 60% of private sector organizations with at least 20 employees.
