Accessibility

In 2005, the Ontario government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The act is the first of its kind in Canada implementing mandatory accessibility standards and it applies to both private and public sector businesses and organizations. This includes places of worship and organizations with as few as one employee. Christian Horizons is committed to providing environments in which all people have an equal opportunity to fully utilize and access services. This commitment extends to people supported by Christian Horizons and members of the general public (e.g., donors, those seeking support information, etc.)
