Hey Ontario; wake up and see how large & wealthy aging and PwD are

65% of companies in Ontario are NOT compliant with the basic CSS Phase 1 of the AODA Act. This means PwD + aging populations in Canada cannot access the workplace fully, cannot access retail and restaurants or vacation spots in which to spend their money. The marketplace worldwide for PwD is the same size as China. Ontario businesses need to wake up to realize that designing products, software, hardware, services, built environments which take into account PwD plus their families will bring about huge growth in the Ontario economy & business success. Never mind the use of compliance – wake up and act like businesses looking for new markets who have money to spend.  JESleeth and; The Accessibility team at OPC Inc.
