The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act provides a set of guidelines that help individuals with differences in ability navigate unfamiliar areas with ease.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act has strict requirements for what signs you need to make your business accessible to all. As a business owner, you have a legal obligation to understand and properly implement these requirements.
The AODA requires businesses to have signs to assist those who are blind, have visual impairments, or have other types of impairment that can make it harder for them to move around a building or to tell where they are. These signs are used to identify everything from room numbers to emergency exits.
There is no defined size for an AODA size. Signs should be sized according to the viewing distance. Signs that need to be seen from farther away need to be larger. If a sign identifies a specific room and is intended to be viewed in close proximity, it should be large enough to accommodate text with a letter height between 16 and 51mm.
The cost for AODA signs varies based on the specific signs you need, the options you choose, and the size of your order. Toronto Custom Signs offers free quotes on all sign orders and is happy to discuss your specific needs.
As a general rule, you should have accessible signs in any place where you would typically hang a sign. Braille signs should have domed or rounded dots that are 0.6 to 0.9mm in height and 1.5 to 1.6mm in diameter.
In order to assist those with visual impairments, clear and raised textual signs should use sans serif fonts, such as Arial or Helvetica, without styling like bold or italics. You should use contrasting colours and avoid images or colours in the background.
This is only a partial summary of the requirements, and you should consult an accessibility signage expert if you have any additional questions about the requirements.
