The Customer Service Standard of the AODA states:
  • ·      -if your company is 20 or more employees they must be trained and report the training in accessibility and disability.
  • ·      -The Integrated Accessibility Standard also contains training requirements for accessibility and the Ontario Human Rights code. 

The best employers and proactive HR managers will go beyond just meeting the AODA training requirements. You can make the greatest impact for your employees and for your organization by using your AODA training as tool for increasing employee engagement/.  For many organizations AODA training is compliance-driven.
