Since 2014, OBIAA has worked with the Province of Ontario to help our BIAs and their Business Members understand and comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). As we continue to champion accessibility for our BIAs and their members, OBIAA is very pleased to announce this newest initiative.
“Accessibility on Main Street” is a year-long project that began in April 2018 and focuses on increasing the accessibility of Ontario’s public spaces and main streets. This project is being guided by an Advisory Committee made up of BIAs, Municipal Accessibility Staff, individuals with disabilities and business owners.
OBIAA will continue to celebrate success stories and best practices across the province, share resources, and collaborate on making a better Ontario to live, work, and play! You can view the Accessibility on Mainstreet Project News Release here!
