The purpose of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) is to improve opportunities for people with disabilities and to provide for their involvement in the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to their full participation in the life of the province. To this end, the AODA requires that each college prepare an annual accessibility plan; consult with people with disabilities in the preparation of this plan; and make the plan public.
This year, Cambrian College continued its commitment to the continual improvement of access to college facilities for students, staff, volunteers and members of the greater community with disabilities. The plan describes: (1) the measures that Cambrian College has taken in the past, and (2) the measures that Cambrian College will take during the period to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities. The plan also reports on the participation of people with disabilities in the development and review of its annual accessibility plans.
A key element of the plan describes the on-line Accessibility Barrier Report that will provide an instant response to noted barriers. Also listed is the public way that the Cambrian Community can report instances of non-accessible areas directly to the chair of the Accessibility Committee.
Cambrian College’s multi-year accessibility plan is available in alternate formats upon request.
