Accessibility For Ontarians With Disabilities Act (AODA)

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.  To ensure support for and compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and relevant regulations, Tandia makes reasonable efforts to ensure that it provides accessible member service to people with various kinds of disabilities and respects the core principles of independence, dignity, integration and equal opportunity.

Online Accessibility 

We are committed to ensuring our online services are accessible to all users. The information below suggests how to obtain the best user experience on our website and explains what we have done to make the website accessible.

Adjust your computer's settings for a better experience

You can improve your online experience by customizing your computer's settings to meet your individual needs. For example, you can increase the size of all fonts or change the colour scheme.

Keep your browser updated

We recommend you keep your browsers up-to-date. Newer browsers tend to provide more display options to make content accessible, and may work better with assistive technologies. For more information on which browsers we support, visit the Browser Requirements tab.

How we have made our website accessible

We have created our website in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. ​These guidelines assist website developers by describing best practices for creating websites that are accessible to all users.

Some of the ways we achieve online accessibility include:

  • Building webpages in a way that allows you to disable the CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) on your browsers or modify the text size using browser controls if the colours or fonts make content difficult to read.
  • Providing a 'skip to content' link at the top of all pages, allowing you to quickly access the body content on each page while avoiding headers and navigation.
  • Creating webpages that allow visually impaired users to navigate the site effectively with a screen reading aid. For example, images have text-based descriptions, title attributes tell users where a link will take them if they click on it, and structured headings provide an overview of the site that lets users jump quickly to desired sections.
