Ontario has an important law. It’s called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. People with disabilities should have the same kind of opportunities as everyone else. They should be able to do the things that most of us take for granted - going to work or school, shopping, taking in a movie or eating out. That’s the goal of Ontario’s legislation. Furthermore, a final proposed Accessible Information and Communications Standard was submitted in the Spring of 2009 to the Minister of Community and Social Services for consideration as law.
