Accessibility Ontario provides training and consulting services to nonprofits, businesses and municipalities in Ontario to help them understand and comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005). We have helped thousands of organizations successfully incorporate the upcoming standard requirements into their organizations.
A trusted and respected provider of training and consultation on the AODA, Accessibility Ontario brings solutions to your organization’s needs at each phase of AODA compliance. Whether it is risk mitigation, complex multi-year strategies, barrier identification, employee accommodation, or ongoing training requirements, we are committed to meeting the accessibility needs of all organizations from small and medium sized businesses to multi-nationals and governments.
Accessibility Ontario’s CEO and lead facilitator is Constance Exley. In a partnership between the Ontario Nonprofit Network and the Ministry of Community and Social Service, Constance designed, coordinated and delivered the EnAbling Nonprofits Ontario (ENO) project. A two-year provincial education and outreach initiative, ENO helped nonprofits to understand and comply with their obligations under the Accessible Customer Service Standard of the AODA.
Message from the Ontario Nonprofit Network
We want to thank Constance Exley who has done an outstanding job of helping the nonprofit sector provide and warm and welcoming reception to all Ontarians. This project has been an excellent example of how government and the sector working together can build strong, welcoming communities.

Message from the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario (ADO)
We are very pleased with the outcome of our EnAbling Change partnership with the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN). The task was enormous – to educate the nonprofit sector in Ontario about their obligations under the Customer Service Standard, the first standard to become law under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). Since Fall 2010, through their EnAbling Nonprofits Ontario (ENO) program, ONN has reached out and educated thousands of nonprofits across the province through high calibre webinars and workshops, monthly e-news, and a dedicated website.
Through their dynamic outreach to the nonprofit sector, ONN has undoubtedly moved the awareness of the AODA and accessibility in general to new heights in Ontario.
