Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) Initiatives at Waterloo

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed in 2005 with the goal of making Ontario accessible for people with disabilities by 2025.  The Act consists of 5 standards:  Customer Service, Information and Communications, Design of Public Spaces, Transportation, and Employment. 

The University of Waterloo is committed to making our campus communities inclusive and accessible for persons with disabilities studying, visiting or working at Waterloo.

If you require assistance or would like more information please contact us by email, phone ext. 35935, or in person at East Campus 1.

If you experience a barrier outside of our regular office hours, please contact Plant Operations and/or Police Services for 24 hour service.
