    In January 2008, the Ontario government enacted the customer service regulation under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005.  To meet regulatory compliance, the University must train everyone who interacts with the public on its behalf in accessible customer service.  The public includes our students, their parents and relatives, visitors, government and ministry representatives and alumni. The training requirement applies to faculty, staff, managers, directors, department heads, senior administrators and student leaders. All employee groups must complete the training on or before February 15, 2010. To go the training website, please follow this link:  Please note that this training is different from other training you may have taken at Queen's University about equity, diversity or human rights.   Please direct any questions you have about the customer service regulation, the AODA or this required training to Jeanette Parsons, Accessibility Coordinator.  Jeanette can be reached at or by telephone at (613) 533-6000, ext. 78984.
