Excellence Canada Accessibility Awards Program
In 2011, Excellence Canada was selected by Ontario’s Ministry of Community and Social Services to help raise awareness of the province’s new Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to all private sector businesses throughout the province.
In response to this mission, Excellence Canada created a new division called People Access, who govern the Accessibility Awards Program. This program recognizes and awards organizations within our community that have shown a commitment to providing excellent customer service for people with disabilities.
