2018 AODA Accessibility Status Report

The Regional Municipality of York is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming community where people of all abilities can access the same programs, services and facilities. The 2018 Accessibility Status Report provides an update on the actions taken by York Region and York Regional Police to improve accessibility and implement the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).

Key accomplishments

York Region implemented many actions beyond compliance to create accessible communities including:

  • Signing the Inclusion Charter for York Region
  • Offering all staff access to a comprehensive and informative Diversity Calendar
  • Hosting lunchtime sessions during National AccessAbility Week to educate staff on conducting accessible meeting and accessible public engagement
  • Develop and update resources to help staff deliver accessible customer service
  • Developed 2018 Municipal Election Accessibility Plan to meet the requirements of Section12.1 of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996

What’s next?

York Region and York Regional Police will continue to implement AODA requirements and the actions outlined in the 2015-2021 York Region Multi-Year Accessibility Plan.

AODA requirements for 2019 relate to information and communications. All Internet websites and web content must conform with World Wide Consortium Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA (excluding live captioning and pre-recorded audio descriptions). York Region reports back on its progress in implementing the actions of the Accessibility Plan on an annual basis.
