Welcome

The Standards Development Committee reviewing the Information and Communications Standards under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 has completed its Initial Recommendations Report and is asking for your feedback. Your feedback will help the committee draft its final recommendations to the Government of Ontario.

By completing this survey by October 18, 2019, you can help identify ways to remove information and communications barriers for people with disabilities in Ontario. While all feedback will be reviewed by the committee, it may not be adopted in the final recommendations or if/when, after receiving the final recommendations, the government amends the standards.

Two different surveys
The committee’s report is separated into two parts: Phase 1 and Phase 2:
  • Phase 1: The committee reviewed all requirements in effect for 24 months or longer and voted on 30 initial related recommendations.
  • Phase 2: The committee developed a proposed recommendation about a new model for modernizing and transforming accessibility in Ontario.
There are two separate surveys available to provide feedback on these two phases. This is the Phase 2 Survey. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to complete the Phase 1 Survey as well.

Phase 2 Survey format
In the committee’s report, Phase 2 consists of a written proposal accompanied by a recommendation. To complete this survey, you will need to have reviewed Phase 2 of the report. You can review the committee’s recommendations in the complete report.

Please note you will not receive an individual response. If you have any difficulty completing the survey, please contact the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility:
