Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)

The University is committed to building a campus community that is inclusive for all individuals, and ensuring that its services, supports and spaces are accessible for persons with disabilities.   

Part of this goal is ensuring compliance with the AODA.  The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) is the regulation under the AODA that provides standards across five key areas to support a fully accessible Ontario by 2025:

  • Customer Service
  • Information and Communication
  • Employment
  • Transportation
  • Design of Public Spaces
