Duty to accommodate students with disabilities in post-secondary educational institutions

Post-secondary education is the gateway to the workplace and community for most Canadians. It is essential that post-secondary education be accessible to all members of our community, including persons with disabilities. Historically, persons with disabilities have not been able to participate fully in post-secondary education. The method for ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal access to post-secondary education is through a process called accommodation.
