  • Cambrian College of Applied Arts & Technology Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

    2019 - 2025

    The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005

    Cambrian College supports the intent of the AODA and its goal of achieving accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to goods,

    services, facilities, accommodations, employment, buildings, structures and premises on or before January 1, 2026.

    We are committed to building an inclusive community that includes accessible learning and working environments.

    The Cambrian College Community is committed to the full inclusion of all members in the learning, working and use of the College, including

    persons with disabilities. To ensure this outcome, all operational policies and procedures for every department of the college are developed under the

    guidelines of dignity, independence, integration and equality of opportunity, in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act,

    2005. This multi-year plan will be updated every five years.

    Commitment to Accessibility

    Cambrian College is committed to full accessibility in every area. We strive to identify and remove barriers on a continual basis to provide the

    optimal learning and working environment for every member of our community. The College is committed to having a barrier-free environment by

    2025 by being proactive in having our facilities, procedures, services and policies more accessible to meet the needs of people with disabilities. This

    plan builds upon the successful completion of the 2012 – 2016 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan and describes the measure the College intends to take to

    meet the remaining accessibility standards. As such, the multi-year plan is available in alternate formats upon request.
