Event description

Description

AODA, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, has been enforced as law since 2005. It mandates all organizations to provide equal access to business and programs to all persons with disabilities.

This day is an opportunity to learn what you can do to meet the legal requirements for AODA within your church and programs.

There is a general session with an overview of the AODA legislation. A panel of representatives from different disability groups will explain how accessibility affects their participation at our churches. Four concurrent workshops after the general session will address the applications of AODA in the areas of:

  • Philosophy of Inclusion: Pastoral considerations
  • Practical considerations for children and youth ministries
  • Accessible environment
  • Drafting an AODA policy

A list of resources will be provided at the workshop to help you with implementation.

Register now at Registration fees is $10.

This event is organized by the Church Network for Supporting Disabilities and is co-sponsored by Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada and Richmond Hill Christian Community Church.
