The AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) will impel more sectors to provide appropriate accommodations over the course of this Council term. These are needs which will only grow with our aging population.

Yet Council is not relieved of an obligation to respond. It has both an important role at the leadership level and fiscally. We still have work to do on our transit system as those changes role out now. We must continue to examine how our programs and services are delivered, and whether they are done with an inclusive, low-barrier model.
