OCC Comments on Proposed Built Environment Standards

    The Ontario Government has released draft rules and regulations that will govern how all physical structures and surrounding pathways and areas must be designed and constructed in order to fully accommodate those with disabilities.

The government needs to balance accessibility principles with an understanding of how technical requirements may negatively impact the competitiveness of businesses and the economy.
