The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act 2005 and the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, Ontario Regulation 429/07, is to improve accessibility for people with disabilities and to provide for their involvement in the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to their full participation in the province of Ontario.
To this end, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act requires each hospital to prepare an annual accessibility plan; to consult with persons with disabilities in the preparation of this plan; and to make the plan public.
