Fourth Review of the AODA

2022-09-19 2:16:07 PM


The Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility has announced the launch of the website to support the Fourth Legislative Review of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and its regulation O. Reg 191/11. This is an independent website for the reviewer and is not run by the Ministry.

The scope of the review will include the following considerations:

  • Effectiveness and Evolution of the AODA;
  • Building Awareness and Community Support; and
  • Compliance and Enforcement Incentives.
In January 2022, the Government of Ontario appointed Rich Donovan by Order in Council to review the AODA. Rich is an entrepreneur and a globally recognized subject matter expert on the convergence of disability, user delight, and experience design.

In accordance with the legislative requirement to undertake a comprehensive review of the AODA and its regulations, a final report shall be released by June 2023.
