College and University Disability Services

Accessibility logos

Now that the summer has come to an end, fall is here. That means many of you are back at school. I remember not too long ago as a student with accessible needs, I wanted to know what disability services were available to help me through college. To help you and your family with that question, we have compiled a list of colleges and universities in the GTA, with a list of the disability services that are available. What are considered services for students with disabilities?

  • An office for students with disabilities which provides assistance and resources for students.
  • Transition programs which provide classes that teach students transitioning to college for the first time on what to expect.
  • Peer mentoring program which matches up students with disabilities and a upper year student for academic and social support.
  • Accessibility plan which is the school’s plan of action on making their institution more accessible as required by the AODA.
  • If medical documentation is required to access accommodations.
