Legal Advocacy to End Discrimination Against Women with Disabilities | Webinar

Examples from litigation, public legal education, community development, and law reform will be provided. Presenters will also discuss lessons learned from legal interventions, including the ableist assumptions in the justice system, the importance (and limits) of terminology, and the need for judicial education.

Ontario Ensuring Workplaces are Accessible by Launching Compliance Audits

Ontario is conducting targeted audits of retail companies with 500 or more employees to ensure workplaces and employee practices are accessible during a three-month audit blitz this fall.

The Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure is leading the audits, with the goal of ensuring that employers are making accessibility a regular part of recruiting and supporting employees with disabilities.

The ministry will check that large retailers meet requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), including:

  • Creating and making public a multi-year accessibility plan that outlines the steps put in place to remove and prevent barriers for employees and customers.
  • Developing customized emergency plans for employees with disabilities.

The province has made resources available and worked with organizations to help ensure workplaces are accessible, and will continue to support businesses in these efforts going forward.
