What is ACA Compliance?

The Accessibility Canada Act (ACA) is a federal law in Canada that requires industries to comply with accessibility rules. It was put into force on July 11, 2019.

Why you should care about the ACA

The Canadian Accessibility Standards Development Organization (CASDO), will develop accessibility standards in collaboration with the disability community and industry.

It is a more generic standard but enforces the “removing barriers” for people with disabilities on the web.
