About this database.
The GAATES ICT Vendor Database has been compiled to assist organizations with the implementation of accessible information and communication technologies into their business practices. Although many of these resources specifically address the obligations of businesses in Ontario (Canada) to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), the concepts, strategies and resources presented can be applied to any organization in any location.
Vendors in the GAATES ICT Vendor Database have identified themselves as providing accessible information and communication services in Ontario. It is important to note that GAATES does not endorse these vendors, nor has it verified the accuracy of the information that vendors provide about their services.
- Quick Search: For simple searching, you can use the Quick Search box near the top of the page. Entering one or more words here will return any vendor-listings that contain one or more of your search-words.
- Advanced Keyword Search: If you want to look for vendor-listings that contain all of your search-words or exact phrases, use the Advanced Keyword Search Form
- Product / Service Type Selection Form: GAATES has asked vendors to identify their AODA-related products and services with specific categories. If you want to search for vendors that provide a specific service, use the Product / Service Type Selection Form
