Approximately 15.5% of the population in Ontario are living with a disability. The AODA was introduced as a law in 2005, with the purpose being to ensure that people with disabilities have equal opportunity to work, travel, play and participate in all aspects of life. The goal is to have a fully accessible province by January 1, 2025. The AODA contains a framework for the development of accessibility standards, which are adopted as regulations and implemented over a number of years.
Victaulic is committed to assessing and evaluating current practices, and developing processes and policies to meet compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. To date, Victaulic has developed the following policies and plans to support the AODA and to provide accessible services to our customers and employees.
