Webinar: Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)

AODA requirements are bringing major changes to Ontario’s career colleges. Understand these changes and your responsibility to accommodate and ensure your college is aware of the resources available with the help of our legal experts.

In coordination with this webinar, we have put together a special issue of CCO's sector magazine, The Voice. This issue serves as a supplementary document and necessary precursor for those attending the AODA webinar.

About the Webinar

Owners and staff who attend this online event will be able to apply the resources and information conveyed in this webinar directly to their institution and ensure staff are prepared to meet the January 1, 2018 AODA requirements. Workplace lawyer, Dan Attwell, will guide participants through AODA compliance obligations with a particular focus on employment standards, to assist colleges with appropriately accommodating accessibility needs.

Participants will secure a greater understanding of how AODA specifically impacts PCCs and be advised of upcoming reporting obligations. 

Dan Attwell’s specialized practice includes significant work in human rights, accessibility, health and safety, and violence and harassment. Dan provides his clients with a practical and modern approach to managing the workplace, with an emphasis on policy development and maintaining best practices.
