In 2005, the government of Ontario passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). It is the goal of the AODA to remove barriers and make Ontario a welcoming and accessible place for persons with disabilities by 2025. Accessibly standards have been created as part of the AODA. These standards are rules that businesses and organizations in Ontario need to follow to identify, remove and prevent barriers to ensure people with disabilities have more opportunities to participate in everyday life. As part of this legislation Veolia Canada is required to create a multi-year accessibility plan to aid us in meeting our accessibility goals. This accessibility plan outlines the policies and actions that Veolia Canada will put in place to improve opportunities for people with disabilities and will also support planning for AODA compliance.
As an Ontario-based company, Veolia Canada has an ongoing commitment to ensure our workplace is addressing disability needs of employees and our customers and is compliant with AODA standards.
