This initiative is inspired by a provincial competition organized by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) and the Government of Ontario. We are seeking to challenge the creative and innovative minds of our undergraduate students to identify accessibility related-barriers and create inclusive, practical, cost-effective and unique solutions to them. 

IDeA is inspired by the goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to make Ontario the most accessible province by 2025. The developed solutions should address one (or several) barriers to accessibility identified by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act (AODA), which are: 

  1. Organizational / Systemic
  2. Architectural / Physical
  3. Information and Communications
  4. Technology
  5. Attitudinal
