Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, (AODA) became law in 2005. It sets out various accessibility
requirements, also known as Standards, which an organization must meet in order
to be classified as accessible. Under the AODA, the Integrated Accessibility
Standards Regulation (IASR) outlines accessibility standards for areas such as: customer
service, information and communications, employment, transportation, and the
built environment in relation to the design of public spaces. The built
environment in relation to the design of public spaces was added to the IASR in
December 2012 to specifically address new construction and major changes to
existing open space features.
