Fourth Review of the AODA

2022-09-19 2:16:07 PM

The Fourth Independent Review of the  Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and its regulation O. Reg 191/11 has launched. The review is supported by a review website which is independent from the Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility. This Review is particularly poignant as it is the final review before the 2025 timelines for a more accessible Ontario under the Act.  

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.
