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.
Alfred Spence Director, Outreach & Compliance Branch of the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario
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.
Lynn Eakin, Policy Advisor, Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN)
Thank you for an amazing and informative presentation. You were very concise, professional, and engaging, and you definitely demonstrated deep knowledge of the subject. I went from not knowing anything about Ontario’s accessibility legislation to having a solid understanding of the necessity and importance of what a law like this can bring to Ontario and its overall population. Thanks!
Tech Soup Canada Introduction to the AODA
You engaged the Board Members and made the session interesting. They have, over time had numerous speakers, some of whom talked at them and others like yourself who involved them in dialogue.

[The] interactive participation made it interesting, informative, and enjoyable… I [now] have more education on correct processes and procedures.
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Training Workshop
Accessibility Ontario tailored the training to meet the needs of our staff and our volunteers to ensure that the information was easy to understand, and meaningful in the context of our work. The discussion was engaging, and the exercises gave us an opportunity to demonstrate what we had learned. We could have provided in-house training, but chose to use Accessibility Ontario to provide our staff and volunteers with the best opportunity to enhance their skills in support of our clients.
Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), York Region Staff and Volunteer Training
This was the second workshop I attended on the accessible customer service standard. This was 100% more useful and I would recommend it to all co-workers and community members. Thanks for making this change less stressful!
Very knowledgeable. Well presented – one of the best seminars I have been too. So much information in a 3-hour period – but presented effectively. Thanks!
I have a much better understanding now of my requirements. I love the resources offered such as training and sample policies.
It’s much less overwhelming than it was when I walked into the room. I feel more confidant that we will be in compliance by the designated date.
Could have listened all day! Very good.
Friendly, clear, helpful, gave breaks in a productive way, no question was considered unimportant.
Good speaker and good listener. Was able to lead discussion well and keep things on track.
