Accessibility

Our accessibility plan at our Markham and Uxbridge sites has been developed in accordance with the Ontarians with Disability Act (ODA, 2001) for the purpose of identifying, preventing and removing barriers. This plan, which describes new and ongoing initiatives, is a testament of Markham Stouffville Hospital’s commitment to accessibility. View our Multi-Year Accessibility Plan, 2018 to 2023
