Accessibility Compliance 101
February 7, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
The Accessibility Compliance 101 Webinar Series has been designed with the recognition that you have limited time and need the most up-to-date information. These 1-hour webinars are an ideal way for busy leaders to engage in an interactive online experience from the convenience of their own desk.
This series of three webinars has been specially designed for staff who are responsible for their organization’s AODA implementation and compliance. We will review the legislation, discuss in detail your legal requirements, provide you with a multitude of resources, and share best practices for ensuring your organization’s successful compliance. There will be time during each webinar to ask the presenting AODA expert questions about how the legislation affects your particular organization.
Who: Management Team Staff, including Executive Directors/CEOs, Directors & Managers (HR, Communications, Policy Development, and Volunteer Coordinators).
Why: Organizations of all sizes (1+ employees) and types (nonprofit, businesses, and public sector) must be compliant with the AODA requirements. Additionally, organizations with 20+ employees must submit their AODA compliance report with the Government of Ontario by Dec. 31, 2017, to confirm that they have met all their legal obligations.
“I learned a lot – it was very valuable.”
When: Every Wednesday, for 3 weeks, from 1:00 pm-2:00 pm
Where: Online webinar via your computer
In addition to these three webinars, we are now offering access to the webinar content after live event, as well as some extra tools and resources to make compliance easier.
INCLUDED IN THE WEBINAR:
“It was easy to understand and having the materials accessible afterward for reference was very important & helpful.”
Maximizing the Value of the Webinar

Debrief the lessons learned. Set aside time at the end of the webinar to discuss takeaways, and how they apply to your group or organization.
“Being online is a great way to learn that is flexible for our team.”
Tap into your training budget. Ask your HR group or manager to underwrite the webinar as part of your organization’s ongoing staff development effort.
“I just watched the last webinar and enjoyed it thoroughly. This course has been incredibly informative, easy to digest, and I feel much more equipped to do my work now!”
Fees are per viewing room (computer), not per person – so invite all key staff to participate!
“Very clear presentation with lots of specific examples.”
