AODA Compliance is the Law

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is applicable to websites. We want to lead this systemic change in an effort to support the universal right for all people to access information and technology. Let's work together to make your website AODA compliant.

Let’s Talk AODA Compliance

Recent Deadlines & Milestones

New AODA requirements began in 2021 as part of Ontario’s goal of being fully accessible to people with disabilities by 2025. As a result, many more businesses and institutions need to ensure their websites are accessible. Failure to do so will result in fines of up to $50,000 CAD per day and up to $100,000 CAD per day for big corporations.

How it works

1. Demo, Scoping, and Onboarding

We will demo your website and discuss your WCAG goals, current ADA compliance, and specifics from your lawsuit or demand letter (if applicable). Then, we’ll create a proposal outlining the audit and certification project.

2. RAMP Account and A11y Center

Sign up for RAMP to install our A11Y Center immediately. Our platform and specialists will guide you through creating an accessibility statement and assigning and training an accessibility advocate. 

3. Initial WCAG Audit

We’ll conduct an exhaustive audit that tests for every WCAG success criterion using automated tools, manual code review, and assistive technologies and deliver a detailed report.

4. Accessibility Remediation & Support

We’ll assign a web accessibility specialist to support your team as they complete remediation to ensure that tasks are completed correctly and efficiently.

5. Accessibility Testing

Our team of individuals with disabilities will test your website using their assistive technologies to identify any remaining barriers. We’ll work with you to eliminate any uncovered issues.

6. Certification and Maintenance

After remediation, we will update your Accessibility Statement and add a Certification Statement. Continue your RAMP Subscription and Partner Program to maintain conformance and display our Certification Seal.

Completed Your Accessibility Compliance Report? Now What?

Your website must conform to WCAG 2.0 AA by January 1, 2021. Conformance applies to websites and web content published after Jan 1, 2012, including web-based applications that an organization controls. Those that have not done so by the first day of 2021 face fines of up to $50,000 CAD per day.

We agree with the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion and strive to create websites that are universally accessible. However, we are sympathetic to businesses caught offguard by this requirement and are ready to work with you to meet conformance efficiently and cost effectively.
