Carleton University is committed to achieving barrier free accessibility for persons with disabilities studying, visiting and working at Carleton. As part of this commitment, there are a variety of services, groups and committees on campus devoted to promoting accessibility and to ensuring that individuals have equitable access to services and facilities. To help provide the best experience to all members of the campus community – students, staff, faculty and visitors – this website offers information on accessibility-related resources available at Carleton.
Carleton is committed to meeting its obligations under the Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). To this end, Carleton has an accessibility plan and policies.
In 2005, the Ontario government enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act with the goal of making Ontario accessible by 2025. With your participation Carleton will be working to support this legislation and maintain our leadership role in this field.
As part of the AODA legislation, businesses and organizations which provide goods and services to people in Ontario – including Carleton University – will have to meet certain accessibility standards in five areas, including customer service, information and communications, built environment, employment and transportation.
