What is AODA compliance?
The AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) is a very large accessibility law that includes a section on digital accessibility standards.
Who must comply with the AODA?
Effective as of June 30th, 2021 after having been introduced in 2005, the AODA applies to various areas of the private and public sectors in different ways.
However, the web accessibility portion of the legislation applies to all websites available in Ontario. It requires, at minimum, WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliance.
Some "larger" organizations must also regularly file accessibility reports, as per section 86.1 of the regulation.
Risks of Non-Compliance
Penalties vary on organization size -- but fines cannot exceed 100,000 CAD per day (for corporations) or 50,000 CAD per day (for individuals/unincorporated entities).
