Fighting For A Barrier-Free Ontario

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Twenty-five years ago, a group of 20 Ontarians with various disabilities gathered at Queen's Park with a mission: to push the province to commit future governments to make Ontario as barrier-free as possible. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act became law in 2005 and set stringent goals and deadlines. The Agenda welcomes David Lepofsky, chair of the AODA Alliance, and Thea Kurdi, vice-president at DesignABLE Environments, an accessible-design organization, to discuss what progress has been made.
