In June 2005, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 received Royal Assent and became law. The new law requires the government to work with the disability community and both the private and public sectors to jointly develop standards to be achieved in stages of five years or less, leading to an accessible Ontario in 20 years. Standards will be set in both the public and private sectors to address the full range of disabilities – including physical, sensory, mental health, developmental and learning. Until these standards are in place, the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 will remain in effect. Bluewater Power will continue developing and implementing their accessibility plan with the above new law and future development of standards in mind.
