Information and Communications Standard
The Accessibility Standard for Information and Communications will help Ontario businesses and organizations make their information accessible for people with disabilities.
Organizations will have to:
- make their websites and web content accessible according to the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. (Note: Organizations with less than 50 employees are exempt from this requirement.)
- provide accessible formats and communications supports as quickly as possible and at no additional cost when a person with a disability asks for them.
- make feedback processes accessible by providing accessible formats and communications supports when requested.
- make public emergency information accessible when requested.
