Meeting Notice – Lunch Seminar
Designing for Accessibility
with guest speaker
Joyce Barlow, AODA Specialist

Seminar Overview

The session will look to achieve the following:

  • Understand how to answer the most common questions of “is it accessible?” and “is it AODA compliant?”
  • Understand the principle differences with AODA and OBC and how to manage each
  • Identify the different areas that AODA addresses vs. OBC, and areas where there may be overlap

A few real-life examples of accessible design in physical space and how to analyze its level of accessibility will be reviewed.  Participants will receive a comprehensive list of resources, including material and design specifications, on accessibility features and elements.
