The Toronto Accessibility Design Guidelines (TADG) is a reference document available to all sectors to conduct accessibility audits and to plan developments, as the City works towards making Toronto a “barrier free” community.

Based on the principles of respect, dignity and inclusion, the TADG is a key component of the City’s Multi-year Accessibility Plan and Corporate Accessibility Policy, and is aligned with the City’s Statement of Commitment to Creating an Accessible City. TADG is also in keeping with the City’s Official Plan, which states that “a key city-building principle is that public buildings, parks and open spaces should be open and accessible to all members of the public.”

The updated TADG (updated in 2021) is available for download.
