COU launches new accessibility website

October 15, 2013

The Council of Ontario Universities this week launched a new bilingual accessibility website for educators, university staff, and the public to raise awareness about mental health and to provide resources for removing barriers for people with disabilities. www.accessiblecampus.ca includes information on the Ontario legislation around accessibility, with which all organizations must be compliant by 2025, and on how universities can effectively implement the legislation on campus (e.g. how to run an accessible meeting, accessible teaching tips, etc.). The site also features engaging videos of students talking about their experiences with university accessibility services and about mental health awareness. COU News Release | Website
