Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Training

York Region Food for Learning is committed to creating school communities where every student can participate fully in all aspects of community life. For this reason, it is important that student nutrition program coordinators and volunteers ensure that programs and facilities are fully accessible for students with various types of disabilities.

To meet these needs, York Region has created an accessibility policy that meets the legal requirements of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and ensures people with disabilities can participate fully in society.

Under the AODA, everyone involved in delivering a student nutrition program should receive training on the requirements of the accessibility standards, the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation, and on the Human Rights Code as it pertains to people with disabilities.
