Under the legal requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), organizations with 20 or more employees in Ontario must submit an accessibility compliance report by June 30, 2021.

WCAG became a requirement for organizations with 50 or more employees in Ontario as of January 1, 2021.
