Fund available to support accommodations for employees with disabilities

Funding to assist in the provision of accommodation for employees with disabilities is available to campus units on a cost-share basis, reports the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility.

The Employee Accommodation Fund supports the performance of work-related duties and responsibilities; examples of eligible expenses include workstation improvements and the acquisition of assistive technology.

Application should be made by the relevant department or unit rather than by individuals in need of accommodation. Employees should speak with their supervisors to commence the process. Once accommodations have been agreed to by all parties involved, the employing units would then complete the funding application.

More information is available on the application form, available at Employees are also encouraged to review the accessibility policy. To request more information or an alternative format, please contact the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility at
