Tips for Barrier Free Design:
q Please note that the Ontario building code regulations has been changed under the 2006 code.
q Ontario is working hard to become more accessible to people with disabilities.
It’s not only the right thing to do; it makes good sense economically and socially.
Ontario’s population is getting older; twenty years from now, 20 percent of the people living in the province will probably have a disability of some kind. When barriers that get in the way of people with disabilities participating fully in society are removed, everyone in Ontario benefits.
The Government of Ontario passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act,2005 (AODA) because people with disabilities should be able to go shopping, attend school, visit their doctor or get a job, without facing barriers that people without disabilities would not face.
That’s what we mean by an accessible society, and that’s our goal.
