Advisory Board uOaccessible

The University of Ottawa is committed to respecting the dignity and independence of all members of its support and teaching staff, its students and visitors to the campus.  We seek to ensure that persons with a disability truly enjoy free and unhindered access to University programs, services, facilities, housing and employment opportunities.

With this in mind, the Human Rights Office has created an advisory committee to assist it in monitoring matters affecting accessibility for members of the University community living with a disability.

Accessibility Squad

The Accessibility Squad is a team of volunteer students and employees that helps break down barriers that hinder access campus resources. The volunteers will be stationed across campus to provide in-person accessibility assistance to students and staff. They will help ensure easier access to resources and information available on campus.


ACCESS-EDU (formally CADSPPE-L) is a free LISTSERV maintained by the University of Ottawa to help facilitate the exchange of knowledge and information on providing services that are accessible, equitable and inclusive to postsecondary students in Canada.
