Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 requires public and private sectors to comply with legislations concerning this act. The goal of this act is to achieve a fully accessible Ontario by 2025, and to ensure that persons with disabilities have equal opportunity when using services in Ontario. The core principles of the legislation are independence, dignity, integration and equal opportunity. Alexandra Marine and General Hospital (AMGH) are committed to supporting a culture that promotes a positive and safe environment for the hospital community that reflects these core principles. We are committed to providing an accessible and inclusive environment to all we serve.
