Information for Employers! The Path to 2025: Ontario's Accessibility Action Plan

Recently the government released "The Path to 2025: Ontario's Accessibility Action Plan".  The Accessibility Action Plan has been introduced on the 10 year anniversary of the landmark Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Legislation.

The action plan is engaging employers to understand the value of hiring people with disabilities, and strengthening the foundation of accessibility in Ontario by building on the province's accessibility laws and standards. The plan promotes Ontario's cultural shift to build awareness of accessibility in innovative ways, to enable Ontarians of all abilities to reach their full potential.

The government has also responded to Provost Moran's review of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005.

Below you can read the details of the Action Plan, a news release, and backgrounder on the government's response to the Moran Report.

The CASL Checkup: How Canadian consumers and small to medium sized businesses view email

One year later and not much has changed. However, many SMBs fail to take advantage of the channel, even though Canadian consumers list it as their preferred method of communication.

July 1 marks the one-year anniversary of the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). Marketers may recall the frenzy that broke out when news of the law was first announced and concerns surrounding unclear terms, shrinking contact lists, and intimidating fines rose to the surface.

To see what life is actually like in a post-CASL world, Constant Contact did a follow up study and surveyed approximately 500 Canadian consumers and 500 small business owners in April 2015. The verdict? It's business as usual.
