Re: Feedback for Initial Proposed Recommendations for Accessibility in Postsecondary Education
Text: Established by the Ontario government in 2017, the Postsecondary Standards Development Committee has brought forward for public comment and feedback a comprehensive series of draft recommendations on what accessibility standards for postsecondary education should include. These new standards will form part of the Ontario government’s regulations to achieve the goals of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and will focus specifically on identifying, removing and preventing barriers to accessibility for students with disabilities in publicly funded postsecondary institutions. Information on the initial recommendations can be found here. The University is already working towards many of these recommendations and welcomes the opportunity to engage in this process.
Your perspective is very important and, as part of this comment and feedback process, we would like to gather your input to form part of our institutional response to these standards. If you wish to provide any comments, please complete our short survey by August 20
