In June 2005, the Province introduced a new piece of legislation, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), which still currently remains in force and mandates both the public and private sectors. This was enacted to benefit all Ontarians by developing, employing and imposing a number of accessibility standards, by the year 2025, through which Ontarians with disabilities are able to attain a barrier-free Ontario, with a right of full participation.
