A Quebec workers’ compensation tribunal has ruled that reducing injured workers’ income replacement benefits at the retirement age of 65 is unconstitutional because it discriminates on the basis of age, contrary to both the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms (section 10) and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (section 15).
It's true that Ontario's businesses will incur extra costs to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). It's true that you will have to change the way you operate, expending more time, money and effort—at least initially. So maybe you're afraid of that. But consider that most people have no idea what not accommodating disability already costs Ontarians through taxes, health care and social services. The province is betting that the systemic and institutional changes in the AODA will actually reduce the burden on government and business by allowing the many Ontarians with mild to severe disabilities to participate in the labour market and economy.
