AODA Wheelchair Accessibility Information Session

accessibilityDid you know that Accessibility Ontario (AODA) requires all businesses to support people with disabilities through mandated Customer Service Standards? 

The AODA standards also include requirements for accessible employment practices (such as policies on hiring and accommodation of people with disabilities) and accessible communications (such as websites).  The Ontario Business Improvement Area Association (OBIAA) and AODA are hosting a free online meeting on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 10:00 am, to share information about the wheelchair accessibility standards for businesses in Ontario.
