If your organization needs help with Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act or AODA (Ontario Regulation 191/11) compliance, I can help.
The AODA applies directly to digital properties such as websites, apps, and documents.
Large and small organizations are both mandated to create accessibility policies.
Large organizations (including the government and public sector) must also have a statement of commitment and multi-year accessibility plan.
There are many mandatory requirements you must be aware of when you initiate your compliance with this law.
For example, it is critical that you maintain a system of records and documentation as you implement and maintain your accessibility plan (the AODA is an ongoing commitment).
As an attorney and ADA website consultant, I am familiar with the federal law and legal landscape for web accessibility in the United States. And now that I’ve joined Essential Accessibility (a Canadian company located in Toronto) as Chief Accessibility and Legal Officer, one of my big projects is to advise clients on the AODA regulation.
Additionally, I can help your organization understand WCAG 2.0 AA (and 2.1 AA). I have written guides on both versions of WCAG and am familiar with all 50 AA success criteria.
If you need an independent consultant to help with understanding and complying with the AODA, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
