The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), sets a goal of an accessible Ontario by 2025. Ontario has introduced new Accessibility Standards for Customer Service (The Standard), the first accessibility standard created under the authority of the AODA. Tandia strives to ensure that key principles of independence, dignity, integration and equality of opportunity are reflected and valued in our business and working environment.
Tandia is committed to providing people with disabilities the same opportunity of access to our services in the same location and in a similar way as these services are available to all we serve.
