Accommodation policies and processes subject of workshop

What are the rights of an individual seeking an accommodation? What if a student or an instructor needs an accommodation? What criteria do supervisors and employees need to consider? Is there a process to be followed?

Instructors, students with teaching responsibilities, and staff are invited to attend a workshop on Navigating Human Rights and Accommodations offered by the offices of Human Rights, Equity, and Accessibility, Open Learning, and Student Rights and Responsibilities.

The session will be held on Feb. 13, from 1 to 3 p.m. in room 1232, Centre for Engineering Innovation. Limited spaces are available, so advance registration is recommended.

Learn about the process and the anchoring laws and policies, including the Human Rights Policy and the tests and criteria you need to know when seeking accommodation or deciding whether an accommodation can be provided.

This workshop will focus on the Ontario Human Rights Code and its application in post-secondary environments. Individual or specific cases and issues will not be discussed in this setting. However, case studies, examples, and broader policy issues will be covered, with time for questions and answers.
