About Us

The Accessible Learning Centre is committed to assisting students with disabilities to reach their full academic potential. By offering a variety of services and resources delivered in a respectful, confidential and professional manner, we support and encourage students’ independence and self-determination.

 

Maintaining the academic integrity of courses is paramount. Accommodations recommended by Consultants are made without compromising key structural or philosophical components of the course. Students registered with the Accessible Learning Centre must achieve academically to the same standards as other students in their program or faculty.

 

However, a disability must not put students at a disadvantage. Under the Ontario Human Rights Code, students with disabilities must have the same opportunity to learn as their non-disabled peers.

 

            “Every Person has the right to equal treatment with respect to

services, good and facilities without discrimination because of

race, ancestry, place of origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual

orientation, marital status, family status or handicap.

            -- Revised Statutes of Ontario, 1990, 19, s.1

 

Accommodations are put in place to level the playing field, not to give students an advantage over others.
