Taking Proactive Steps to Comply With the AODA is a Smart Business Move

Whether the AODA is actually given teeth has yet to be seen, but there is a clear business argument for becoming accessible. A MCSS infographic shows that over the next 20 years, 40 per cent of total income in Ontario will be earned by Ontario’s aging population and people with disabilities. That’s equivalent to $536 billion. The infographic also suggests improved accessibility in Ontario could lead to $9.6 billion in new retail spending and $1.6 billion in new tourism spending.
