Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO) is happy to announce the AODA 10th Anniversary Champion Award. On June 13, 2015 the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) celebrates 10 years as legislation. The Act was enacted in continuance of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act (ODA), 2001. The purpose of this Act is to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities and to provide for their involvement in the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to their full participation in the life of the province.
AMCTO, with the support of the Government of Ontario, is recognizing individuals who demonstrate leadership in accessibility and disability issues through the new AODA 10th Anniversary Champion Award. This is a one time award to recognize outstanding individuals who demonstrate passion and commitment in the promotion of awareness of accessibility and inclusiveness in their community.
The AODA 10th Anniversary Champion Award recognizes outstanding individuals who demonstrate leadership in accessibility, disability issues, passion, and commitment in the promotion and awareness of accessibility and inclusiveness in their community.
Congratulations to Diana Simpson, Clem Lowe and Rabia Khedr, members of the Accessibility Advisory Committee.
