AODA Reporting Requirements

December 2017

If you are a private or non-profit corporation or organization with 20+ employees,
you are required to file a 2017 accessibility compliance report by December 31,
2017.

The accessibility compliance report requirement of the Accessibility for Ontarians
with Disabilities Act (the “AODA”) is a method of confirming that you have met all
of your current obligations under the AODA.
The Accessibility Compliance Report can be downloaded from the Central Forms
Repository, which is available here.

Before you file a compliance report…
To complete the form you need your organization’s:

  • legal name
  • business number (BN9- found in your federal or provincial tax return)
  • number of employees
  • name and contact information of your certifier (a senior officer with legal
    authority to say that the report is complete and accurate)

If you cannot answer “yes” to all of the questions on the accessibility compliance
report, you may want to contact a lawyer or someone experience in accessibility
legislation to assist you in meeting your obligations under the AODA.

More information about filing your compliance report can be found online here.

If you have questions regarding this Bulletin or would like further information about
compliance with the AODA, you can contact Laura Glithero at
