Does Your Website Comply With AODA?
As of January 1, 2014, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requires all private and non-profit organizations to adhere to new accessibility standards. Organizations of 50 or more employees must incorporate accessibility information and communications standards into their:
- Feedback processes
- Employee information
- Public information, including new or refreshed websites (and any web content published after January 1, 2012)
Be Responsive to the Needs of Millions of Canadians
Almost four million Canadians have some form of disability. By complying with Ontario’s accessibility requirements, you can create opportunities for your business or organization to grow and also uphold your reputation for delivering good service.
So, is your website compliant? H2 Central can help your organization address AODA regulatory requirements for your online presence.
Through an H2 Accessibility Review, we will help your organization meet AODA requirements through:
- Technical & design feedback
- Qualitative & quantitative benchmarking
- Quick wins
- Long-term planning
