Implementation of the Customer Service Standard, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed by the Ontario Government, Ministry of Community, and Social Services, with the goal of establishing a “fully accessible” Ontario by 2025. The Customer Service Standard is the first of five Standards to become law. All Ontario Universities must comply with the Customer Service Standard by January 1, 2010.
The Department of English is committed to providing an accessible, equitable, and inclusive learning environment. For accessibility needs, please contact our English Department offices (above), or U of T Accessibility Services
A requirement of the Customer Service Standard is to provide information to all employees regarding the delivery of service. For the University the legislation applies to everyone who interacts with a student, future student, or member of the public. For more information about the AODA, please visit www.aoda.utoronto.ca
