Ryerson University is committed to providing an accessible learning and employment environment for students, employees and members of the Ryerson community. We are committed to the principles of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), and aim to ensure that dignity, integration and equality of opportunity are embedded in all aspects of the University culture.

Ryerson's approach to furthering the principles of the AODA is that all members of the University have a shared responsibility to support access and inclusion. Underpinning this approach is a commitment to the practice of universal design which addresses accessibility systemically. Further, we continue to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility and full participation.

Ryerson is committed to:

  • Accessibility in the Classroom;
  • Accessibility in the Workplace;
  • Accessibility on Campus.


Ryerson has launched a new accessibility initiative and has transitioned from an annual ODA reporting structure to a multi-year plan as per AODA requirements commencing 2013. Therefore the 2010-2011 Accessibility Plan is the final report in this format.
