AODA Compliant Websites

WCAG 2.0 Level AA

What is an AODA Compliant Website

Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is what guides web developer and technical coders to create a website that complies with this law. These standards were developed by committees with representation from different sectors, including people from the disability community. Written into the AODA is a time frame within which government, public-sector groups and organizations of different sizes must comply with the accessibility standards. The Ontario government’s goal is for the province to become completely accessible by 2025.
