What Is Accessibility for Ontarians With Disabilities Act

This act is to ensure all Ontarians have access to all programs and services to improve daily life for a person with a disability. This means if you have physical or mental disabilities you will have access to programs and services to improve opportunities for a person with a disability.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act was first applied to the public as of January 1st, 2010. This was when the public first had to start complying with all the rules and regulations of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. This law was first discovered by Sir Dalton who saw that people were not being treated equally and disable people were being treated differently than others when it came to the workplace. When it came time to enforce laws about this problem no one took anything seriously. This was when Sir Dalton decided to come up with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. This was the only law that would have rules and regulations with penalties that would be strictly enforced.

Reviewing the Act

This act is to ensure that people with disabilities in Ontario are treated with respect and accommodated in the proper way. This act is to assure that there are accommodations for people with disabilities to make sure they have every opportunity everyone else has. To make sure that people are complying with the rules and regulations there are inspection, paperwork, and fines in place to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity.

This act is put into place to protect and help those with disabilities. Many of the committees that are a member of this act are people with disabilities too to ensure that everything implemented is fair and does not make them stand out. It is to make them feel equal and break the barriers between them and other people. No one likes to feel left out and this is what this act is helping. It is helping people with disabilities in the workplace, in society, and in organizations feel like they belong even if they are a little different. Everyone is to be treated equal and if you are not to comply with the rules set in place you can receive a hefty fine.
