CME Launches EnAbling Change Program to Help Manufacturers with AODA Compliance 

CME Ontario has recently launched An EnAbling Change Project with the Government of Ontario, to inform and support small and medium-sized manufacturers in Ontario with their compliance obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005. CME consistently hears from members on the challenges they face in addressing regulatory burden in the face of intensifying competitive pressures.

Meanwhile, there are 1.8 million Ontarians with disabilities, and accessible employment practices can help Ontario’s manufacturers and exporters reach this untapped supply of talent. The Enabling Change partnership provides an opportunity to partner with government to provide useful information, tools, and resources to make compliance straightforward, and help participating organizations realize the benefits of accessibility.

The program is hosting the first of a series of webinars on October 12, 2016 at 1:00 pm to help companies understand and comply with Ontario’s accessibility standards, and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005. CME will also develop and host a website with helpful links to information, tools, and resources for manufacturers relating to accessibility.

The session will provide an overview of the CME members’ accessibility obligations under the law, provide some useful links, and give manufacturers an opportunity to share their experiences related to compliance with Ontario’s accessibility laws.
