It is the policy of Trinity College to strive to provide at all times, equal opportunity and equal access for our employees, students, volunteers, alumni, visitors and community members.
The management of the College is committed to:
Trinity College will make every effort to identify and remove barriers to accessibility in the present and for the future and prevent the development of new barriers. Policies, plans and reports will be made public and accessible to the broader community.
The provisions of the Trinity College Accessibility Policy will continue to adhere to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA); Accessibility Standards for Customer Service, 2008(CSS); and the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulations, 2011 (IASR) a harmonization of the Information and Communications, Employment and Transportation standards.
We encourage every stakeholder of the college community to renew his or her commitment to the College’s Accessibility Policy.
