Accessibility is about giving people of all abilities opportunities to participate fully in everyday life. Queen's is committed to fostering a campus community that is accessible and inclusive for all individuals.

Every person who communicates and interacts with persons with disabilities on behalf of Queen's University must receive and complete all trainings in the AODA Training Suite applicable to them. As part of its obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005) the University is required to provide mandatory training. All employees of the University are expected to complete the training by January 2014.  New employees are expected to complete the training within the first two weeks of starting at the University. Any updates or changes to the Integrated Standards Regulations or Queen's University Policies will be incorporated into the existing training modules and communicated to all staff. The University is expected to achieve full compliance and is required to track, and then report, its numbers back to the government. A report will be sent to each Unit quarterly in order to track who has completed each training. 

A Booklet version of the AODA Training Suite is available for volunteers and casual staff without netid's.  AODA Training Booklet.

The AODA Training Suite includes:
