The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed in 2005 with the goal of making Ontario accessible for people with disabilities by 2025. The Act consists of five standards: Customer Service, Information and Communications, Design of Public Spaces, Transportation, and Employment.
The University of Waterloo is committed to making our campus communities inclusive and accessible for persons with disabilities studying, visiting or working at Waterloo. Please refer to Policy 58-Accessibility for more details.
