What Is AODA?

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities act serves to identify, remove, and prevent barriers for people with disabilities.

It applies to every business in Ontario, public and private sector. The AODA includes accessibility standard requirements that all businesses must meet.

There are accessibility standards that apply directly to web and digital accessibility (WCAG), and we’re here to help you identify if you’re within requirements.

What Does It Take To Be Compliant?

Your site’s content should follow a consistent theme throughout, and all pages and links should have self-explanatory titles.
