Confidentiality This information will be treated confidentially. It will be submitted to the appropriate Accessibility Committee for consideration in the development of the annual accessibility plan. Accessibility Planning at the University of Windsor Each year the University of Windsor compiles an Accessibility Plan to meet its obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA). The purpose of both the AODA & ODA is to improve opportunities for people with disabilities through identification, removal and prevention of barriers to participation in the life of the province. This is consistent with the University’s mission and values to foster an accessible environment for everyone on campus.
Annual accessibility planning spurs strategic thinking about barrier removal as well as providing a framework for further development of a truly integrated and inclusive environment. The University has five AODA Standards-based Committees: Accessible Built Environment Committee (ABEC), Accessible Customer Service Committee (ACSC), Accessible Education, Training and Awareness Committee (AETAC), Accessible Employment Committee (AEC), and Accessible Information & Communication Committee (AICC). These committees need input from faculty, staff and students with disabilities.
