Ontario Employers – File Your Accessibility Compliance Report by December 31, 2023

If you are an Ontario employer with over 20 employees, you are required to file before the end of the year.  The article below was a good reminder for me.

The government site explains the requirements for firms of ALL sizes.  https://www.ontario.ca/page/accessibility-rules-businesses-and-non-profits

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (“AODA”) is a law that sets out a process for developing and enforcing accessibility standards. Under AODA, accessibility standards have been created that organizations must follow.

To ensure employers in Ontario have met current accessibility requirements under AODA, a compliance report must be filed periodically.

If you are a business or non-profit organization with 20 or more employees in Ontario, you must file an accessibility compliance report every 3 years.
If you are a designated public sector organization you must file an accessibility compliance report every 2 years.

The deadline to file in both cases is December 31, 2023.
