When communities and businesses are accessible, everyone wins. People with disabilities can take part in everyday life, and businesses gain potential qualified talent, customers and higher profits.

That is why the government is providing free online resources and guides that make it easier for businesses and communities to get the information they need to help them be more accessible and inclusive.

Today, the Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, announced the "Accessibility in Ontario: Information for Businesses" resource at the Ontario Disability Employment Network's Rethinking Disability Conference.

The web page will continue to be updated regularly with helpful resources and guides on topics such as inclusive hiring, how to make workplaces more accessible and the economic benefits of hiring people with disabilities.

Ontario remains committed to protecting what matters most to people with disabilities, seniors and their families.
