Accessible Site Furnishings

Accessible Site Furnishings

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was created in 2005 in the hopes of making a more accessible environment in our province. With new laws and standards taking effect in 2025, creating inclusive public spaces is more important than ever. 

From an economic standpoint, improvements to accessibility can result in an increase of $9.6 billion in retail spending, and $1.6 billion for new tourism in Ontario over five years. Not to mention, in 2035, it is estimated that 40% of our province’s customer base will individuals with disabilities. 

Who Should Consider Accessible Outdoor Furnishings?

Everyone from foundations and organizations, Municipal Planners, Landscape Architects, Public Parks and Conservation Authorities to those running institutions serving the public like Hotel Managers, Urban Developers, and Educational Facilitators need to be aware of accessibility standards. Any space open to the public should be inclusive and accessible to all people.
