Achieving Compliance with Barrier Free Washrooms
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) became law in 2015. The act’s obejctive is to remove all boundaries or restrictions faced by those with a disability with the goal to make Ontario accessible to all by 2025.
If you operate a facility that provides goods or services, offers accommodations or own a building that is used by others, then the AODA applies to you.
One of the main standards of the AODA is that there must be one universal washroom for every three floors and one universal washroom in all single story buildings.
The universal washroom must be accessible as possible and that’s where we can help.
