Accessibility

In January 2018, the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service became law. This law requires organizations to comply with Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) legislation, with a goal to make Ontario barrier-free by 2025.

As a public organization, we have a responsibility to ensure all buildings, policies, learning environments and communications are accessible to individuals with disabilities including our website and online resources. We also provide accessible formats of our printed materials if requested. Contact us if you require an alternative format.

We take our responsibility one step further, taking people with varying visual abilities into consideration when it comes to our design ethos. Specifically, our brand colours were selected to be distinctive while remaining as accessible as possible. This includes meeting W3C AA standards for contrast online with accessibility―an important reason why following the brand guidelines when using the logo or other brand elements is key.
