Accessible Services for People with Disabilities
Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) is committed to providing accessible services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities.
We pursue a proactive approach to accessibility by developing and implementing policies and procedures in accordance with Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005.
Materials are available in alternative formats upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require accessibility-related supports when obtaining in-person services, please speak to our staff who will do all they can to accommodate your needs.
