The article emphasizes the importance of creating accessible buildings to accommodate individuals with disabilities and aging populations. It discusses the legislation in Ontario, including the Ontario Building Code (OBC) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), which set minimum accessibility requirements for buildings.
