Accessibility Legislation and Compliance

Complementary Legislation

Three pieces of complementary legislation have a major impact on accessibility in Ontario: 

  • Human Rights Code, Ontario's Building Code (OBC) and the AODA.  The Human Rights Code has primacy and sets out the legal duty to accommodate people with disabilities.
  • The OBC sets minimum accessibility standards for the construction of buildings.
  • The AODA sets a progressive goal to create a more inclusive Ontario by January 1, 2025.
