AODA - Accessibility Standards for Customer Service & Integrated Standards Program

The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarian's with Disabilities Act, 2005's is to develop, implement, and enforce accessibility standards in order to achieve full accessibility for Ontarian's with disabilities in by January 1st, 2025.

The Customer Service Standard of the Act requires businesses to provide fully accessible customer service to people with disabilities. Organizations were to comply with this regulation by January 1st, 2012. The Ontario government passed the Integrated Accessibility Regulation in 2011 under the AODA and compliance steps.

Testimonials


“The AODA training program held by HR Performance & Results was very informative and educational. The content and format of the program was well put together and we gained the knowledge we needed about the AODA and its requirements. The facilitator, Janice Leroux, did an excellent job! The team at HR Performance & Results assisted us in complying with the AODA, and helped us with the required policies by creating and customizing the policies based on our business.”

“HR Performance and Results thankfully notified us about the new AODA regulations well in advance so we were able to hold the necessary training for our staff and be prepared for any surprise Audits.  Our employees were intrigued by the array of issues that persons with disabilities are affected by and how as a Company we need to be diligent and proactive about servicing these customers.   HR Performance made the training session interesting, interactive, and informative.“
