What is it
Beyond Compliance: Accessibility Self-Assessment Tool for Organizations is a free online tool designed to be used by private, public and not-for-profit organizations of all sizes across Ontario who want to create a more accessible organization.
Based on best practice research about creating accessible and inclusive organizations, this online survey allows you to measure how well your organization performs against best practice measures grouped under six key areas of organizational responsibility.
Once the survey is complete a unique report is produced that provides an aggregate view of your organization’s accessibility and helps you identify new initiatives for improvement. Repeated on a scheduled basis the tool can also track change in your organization over time.
Beyond Compliance is not meant to measure an organization’s compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (or AODA) but rather assist your organization in knowing what you can do beyond compliance to create a more accessible organization. Use of the tool is free, voluntary and confidential.
Beyond Compliance: Accessibility Self-Assessment Tool for Organizations was produced by The Regional Municipality of York with support from the Government of Ontario.
