This 2009 Accessibility Plan is the seventh Region of Peel Accessibility Plan as per the municipal requirements under the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA). The ODA requires that each year the Region prepare and publish an Accessibility Plan and seek the advice of an AAC in doing so.
On June 13, 2005, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) was enacted. The AODA requires the development of accessibility standards with the goal of leading to an accessible Ontario by 2025. The legal obligations under the ODA remain in force until the Act is repealed. Please refer to Appendix V of this Plan to obtain further details about these proposed accessibility standards.
Similar to the Plans of previous years, the seventh Accessibility Plan, as approved by Regional Council, is available in alternate formats when requested and will be posted on the Region of Peel website www.peelregion.ca.
