Co-presenters: Mary Catherine Mehak, Mehak Kelly and Associates, and Paul Ronan, Ontario Parks Association
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (the AODA) requires improvements in the accessibility of key public spaces, including playgrounds, trails and beaches. Representatives from Park and Recreation Ontario and the Ontario Parks Association share their work regarding the Design of Public Spaces (DOPS) Standard and introduce requirements set by the Standard. Includes what types of facilities are covered, who must comply, timelines for compliance, consultation requirements and maintenance expectations.
