Nine Years after the Ontario Government Promises to Review All Ontario Laws for Accessibility Barriers, the Wynne Government Proposes Modest Legislative Changes to 11 Laws , To Be Fast-Tracked Through the Legislature

In the 2007 Ontario election, Ontario’s Liberal Government, led by Premier Dalton McGuinty, promised that the Government would review all Ontario laws for accessibility barriers. That includes 750 statutes and many more regulations.

Some nine years later, the Government has only reviewed 51 of the 750 Ontario statutes. It chose to start with 51 statutes that had the highest impact on people with disabilities.
