AODA Reporting Requirements: Time Is Running Out!

If you are a private or non-profit corporation or organization with 20+ employees, you are required to file a 2017 accessibility compliance report by December 31, 2017

The accessibility compliance report requirement of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (the “AODA”) is a method of confirming that you have met all of your current obligations under the AODA.  

The Accessibility Compliance Report can be downloaded from the Central Forms Repository, which is available here 

Before you file a compliance report…

To complete the form you need your organization’s: 

  • legal name
  • business number (BN9- found in your federal or provincial tax return)
  • number of employees
  • name and contact information of your certifier (a senior officer with legal authority to say that the report is complete and accurate)

If you cannot answer “yes” to all of the questions on the accessibility compliance report, you may want to contact a lawyer or someone experience in accessibility legislation to assist you in meeting your obligations under the AODA. 

More information about filing your compliance report can be found online here

If you have questions regarding this Bulletin or would like further information about compliance with the AODA, you can contact Laura McKeen at or by telephone at 519-672-9330.
