UNITED FOR A BARRIER-FREE ONTARIO
NEW MINISTER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCESSIBILITY FOR ONTARIANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT WRITES AODA ALLIANCE
November 23, 2011
On November 15, 2011, the new minister responsible for implementing the AODA, Community and Social Services Minister John Milloy, wrote the AODA Alliance. We set out his letter below.
This is a brief introductory letter from Mr. Milloy. It is written in response to our November 1, 2011 letter, where we introduce ourselves and identify his Ministry's priorities, from our perspective, for the implementation of the AODA. Our letter is available at: http://www.aodaalliance.org/strong-effective-aoda/11012011.asp
In his letter, Mr. Milloy refers to a telephone conversation he recently had with AODA Alliance chair David Lepofsky, in which we offered our help with the AODA's implementation. We appreciate the Minister agreeing to speak by phone so soon after he assumed this new portfolio.
