Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act training updated

Queen’s Human Rights and Equity Office has revised its training for the suite on the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

The updated AODA courses are: Accessible Customer Service, Access Forward, and Human Rights 101. Also, a new training module, titled Ableism, has been added to the collection. The revised versions are now available in the HREO’s Training Catalogue.

Incoming faculty and staff are required to complete the updated modules. Current employees who have previously taken the older modules are not obligated to do so; however, participation by these individuals is encouraged.

The AODA was created to ensure Ontarians with disabilities are given fair access to spaces, while also designing elements of everyday experiences to meet accessibility obligations. The goal is to achieve accessibility in Customer Service, Design of Public Spaces, Employment, Information and Communication, and Transportation by 2025.
