A private or non-profit organization with 50+ employees; or


A public sector organization.

WCAG Website Compliance


The AODA compliance standards require organizations to comply with the Website Content and Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0.

WCAG standards cover four main areas:


Users must be able to perceive the web content displayed


Users must be able to operate the website interface


Users must be able to understand the information presented


Website content must continue to remain accessible as it evolves

WCAG 2.0 requirements fall under three levels: A, AA, AAA. Level A is the simplest, defined just as basic website accessibility.

As of 2016, all organizations must meet Level A requirements.

On January 1, 2021, all public websites and web content must meet Level AA requirements.

To learn what your organization needs to do in order to prepare for this deadline, JIG Technologies can help.

Compliance Penalties to Avoid

AODA website compliance is mandatory for organizations in Ontario.

In the case of AODA, organizations with 20+ employees can incur these maximum penalties:


Any organization that is found guilty can be fined up to $100,000 per day.


Individual directors and officers of said organizations can be fined up to $50,000 per day.
