What is AODA?
Lambton College is committed to meeting its obligations under the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and providing a safe and barrier free environment for all staff, students, and members of the public.
We recognize the value in creating an inclusive environment for everyone. A place where colleagues, clients, staff, and students are treated with dignity, respect, and equality and valued for their contributions to our team.
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was established to make goods, services, and facilities accessible to all people with disabilities in all public, private, and not-for-profit sectors by January 1, 2025.
AODA provided the province with a mandate to develop, implement, and enforce sets of accessibility standards. Lambton College, as a large public sector organization, must comply with the following AODA Standards:
- Accessibility Standards for Customer Service
- Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation, which include:
- Accessibility Standards for Information & Communication
Accessibility Standards for Employment
Accessibility Standards for Transportation
Accessibility Standards for the Built Environment
