Ministry of Education Accessibility Plan, 2011-2012

Each year, the government of Ontario sets a course to prevent, identify and remove barriers for persons with disabilities. Every ministry participates through its annual accessibility plan, as required under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA). The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is Ontario’s roadmap to become barrier-free by 2025. This plan sets forth the Ministry of Education guidelines for accessibility under the rubric of the AODA.
