We All Have a Role...
Western is committed to accessibility for persons with disabilities. In our formal and informal interactions with members of the campus community, each of us has a role to play in fulfilling our responsibilities as outlined in the AODA’s Accessibility Standards.
By law, each person who interacts with students, alumni, visitors, or retirees is obligated to know the requirements of these new standards and communicate with persons with disabilities in a manner that takes the person's disability into account. Accessible formats and communication supports must be provided for persons with disabilities in a timely manner and at no extra cost. Please review the resources included on these pages to help you understand these obligations and requirements.
Thank you for learning about and contributing to increased accessibility at Western.
