About Multi-Year Plan AODA
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) became law on June 13, 2005. Under the legislation, the government of Ontario will develop mandatory accessibility standards that will identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities in key areas of ever day living. The standards will apply to both the private and public sector organizations throughout Ontario. The objective of this Act is to have all of Ontario accessible to people living with disabilities by 2021.
This Multi-Year Accessibility Plan is developed in accordance with the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA). It outlines the intentions of Equipment World Inc., to meet its obligations under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA).
