Time and again, we've heard that Ontario is not on track to become a fully accessible province by 2025, a deadline imposed by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
Ontario needs a plan of action on accessibility, and it’s time to open up the Ontario Legislature to hear from those directly impacted by failing to meet AODA targets.
And so, with that in mind, I write to invite you to an Accessibility Town Hall at the Ontario Legislature on April 10, 2019. Following Question Period, a lunch will be hosted in Room 351, followed by three hours of open presentations to listen to your perspectives.
I am pleased that David Lepofsky (Chair, AODA Alliance) and Sarah Jama (Co-Founder, Disability Justice Network of Ontario) will be on hand to offer brief remarks prior to these open hearings. All necessary accommodations will be available to ensure you can participate.
Please join us! Ontario needs your ideas, expertise, and passion to ensure this province is accessible to all, where everyone can live their lives to the fullest.
This is an accessible venue. Please email or call us about any accommodations you require - we want to ensure that everyone's access needs are met.
