Wynne Government Seeks Public Feedback on Its Proposals to Amend Two Accessibility Standards that Would Do Little for People with Disabilities But would Break an Important Promise to Ontarians with Disabilities

It posted online a short and problematic five-page summary of amendments it proposes to make to the 2007 Customer Service Accessibility Standard and the 2011 Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation. Those are the two accessibility standards that the Government has enacted in the past decade under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
