Topic: Breaking Down Barriers: Understanding your Condominium’s Accessibility Obligations

Our panel of experts reviewed the requirements under the Ontario Building Code and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), to give you the information you need to ensure that your condominium is barrier-free. Topics included what you need to know when carrying out repair or renovation work, what to do when your condo receives an accessibility accommodation request, and what the Human Rights Code implications and requirements are when dealing with requests.
