AODA requires all businesses, and organizations in Ontario with 50+ or more employees, in both the public, private and non-profit sectors, to be fully accessible to people with disabilities by 2025.
Technologies are constantly evolving, and it is our moral responsibility to ensure that it is accessible to everyone. The Ontario government came up with AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) in 2005 to help people with disabilities. The law aims to protect people with disabilities by ensuring private, and public entities follow accessibility standards.
The law enables individuals and organizations to comply with accessibility standards developed by committee representatives from various sectors. It is broken down into five major areas of business for ease of understanding:
- Information and communications
- Customer service
- Design of public spaces
AEL DATA provides services in the information and communications sector. Our dedicated team of experts and experienced professionals ensure that the AODA accessibility standards are strictly maintained.

We Can Help You
Whether you are starting out, or overhauling your website, auditing is the best place to start. Our experts provide you with a detailed manual audit of your digital asset (website, mobile app, software etc.) against the WCAG conformance level that you require.
Now that you have an audit report, you can choose to fix your web application in-house with our Web Accessibility Specialist working with your team, or have Modern Accessibility developers remediate it for you. We also support remediation for third-party audit reports.
Our consultants can jump in at any stage of your accessibility planning, whether it is pre-audit, in the middle of remediation or planning for future contingencies, and guide you and your organization to web accessibility compliance.
