What are Advantage Tactile Systems

Understanding Canadian Accessibility Codes and Standards


Several crucial regulations in Canada require tactile installations in public spaces. These ensure visually impaired individuals can safely navigate surroundings independently. 


Key regulations include:


Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)


The AODA sets accessibility standards for Ontario across various sectors. It mandates tactile installation in all newly constructed or renovated public spaces.


CSA Standards


The CSA Group develops standards for accessibility in the built environment across Canada. CSA B651 is the key standard for tactile walking surface indicators.


National Building Code


The National Building Code of Canada includes accessibility requirements for new construction and renovations. It adopts tactile requirements from CSA standards.


Provincial Building Codes


Provincial building codes like Ontario's contain additional accessibility rules for construction. These also reference CSA tactile installation standards.


By selecting Advantage Tactile Systems for your projects, you can seamlessly comply with all provincial and national regulations.
